Tree seedlings are now available

CONCORD – Each spring, the State Forest Nursery makes available to the public large numbers of low-cost tree seedlings and shrubs to be used for beautification, reforestation, erosion control and wildlife habitat enhancement.

Individuals can order the seedlings through March 30 each year, with the seedlings distributed for planting at the end of April. The seedlings are ordered in quantities of 10, 25 or 100 per bundle and cost 30 cents to $1 per seedling. Seedlings can be picked up at the state nursery in Boscawen, at one of the 10 county Cooperative Extension offices on a specific day in April or can be shipped directly.

Ordering information is available at www.nhnursery. com or by contacting N.H. Division of Forests and Lands, PO Box 1856, Concord, NH 03302-1856 or 271-2214.
