2018 Seedling Sale Fillable Order Form

Tri-County/City SWCD is proud once again to offer high-quality, affordable, bare-root seedlings to the community for purchase.  Planting trees is one way to conserve, sustain and improve soil, water, and related resources.

NEW SPECIES offered this year are the Fringetree (Chionanthus virginicus) and American Elderberry (Sambucus canadensis). We are particularly pleased to offer the relatively little-known Fringetree: easy to grow in both sun or part-shade, deer-resistant but wildlife friendly with 3-season interest for the landscape. With the exception of lilac, all species are local Central Rappahannock natives that are well-adapted to our area.

logo no captionTri-County/City SWCD has served the Commonwealth of Virginia Counties of King George, Spotsylvania, Stafford since 1944 and the City of Fredericksburg since 1984. We are a local political subdivision of the Commonwealth, focusing on natural resource problems and solutions. Like other conservation districts, Tri-County/City SWCD is self-governed and non-profit and establishes priorities, sets policy, and administers programs to conserve soil and water resources.
Tri-County/City SWCD is not a regulatory agency. Instead, the agency provides technical assistance, information, educational programs, volunteer opportunities, and newsletters to citizens on many aspects of water quality, nonpoint source pollution, and stream health.
