Ordering Tree Seedlings
Before you order seedlings, ask yourself these questions:
- Which trees will grow well in my area?
- What species are best for my planting purposes?
- Will this species grow in my soil?
- How many trees can I plant and properly care for?
- How and when do I order my trees?
This guide helps answer these questions. http://extension.missouri.edu/p/G5006
If you are planning a large planting or a commercial planting, seek advice from a professional forester. Contact the MU Extension center in your county or the State Forester, Missouri Department of Conservation, Jefferson City. The 2013-2014 Seedling Order Form, published by the Missouri Department of Conservation, can be obtained at the Buchanan County Extension office or on-line ordering of seedlings can be done by going to the Missouri Department of Conservation website. http://mdc.mo.gov/your-property/seedling-orders-and-planting-guide
