Greening up? Controlling erosion? Making a street more attractive? Spring into Action with a tree and shrub bulk buy program!
Each year the Albany County Soil and Water Conservation District offers a wide variety of seedlings/transplants, ground covers, fruits/berries, and wildflower seed mixes at reduced rates to encourage conservation planting. Various planting supplies such as rain barrels, tree tubes, marking flags, and fertilizer tablets are offered as well. Check out the 2014 Tree and Shrub Order Form. If your community or organization has a street tree initiative, erosion control program, or a beautification project, this could be a great opportunity to bulk purchase and save money.
