Advantages of planting trees around your farmstead include the following:

Improve air quality, trees absorb carbon dioxide and replenish the atmosphere with oxygen.
Help save energy by cooling in the hotter months and as windbreaks during the winter.
Windbreaks reduce noise.
Improves water quality by reducing runoff and erosion.
Trees improve wildlife diversity by providing habitat.
Provide income from Christmas tree sales.  Windbreak trees can only be resold as cut Christmas trees.

“There are both, barerooted and potted varieties available at this time, but I suggest you order soon because supplies are limited to a first-come basis.”

Orders will be taken until March 6, 2018 with the seedlings arriving in Late March.
