Benton SWCD holds an annual Tree Sale with orders for the 2018 season beginning this late October 2017. Trees are available on a first-come first-serve basis, so place orders as soon as possible for the best selection.
Tree Pick Up takes place at the City of Foley Storage Building, located at 440 Broadway Avenue South in Foley. Customers will also recieve a notice in the mail with pick-up dates and times. Trees not picked up during scheduled pick-up dates will be subject to a $20 per day storage fee.
There are currently 25 different tree and shrub species as well as wildlife packets that will be available for purchase through Benton SWCD. Information on some of the tree species sold can be found below, Minnesota Board of Water and Soil Resources (BWSR) website, and on the Minnesota Department of Transportation website.
Our office offers free technical assistance to landowners, assisting in the selection of ideal tree species to plant for their property as well as planting designs. We have two tree planters that can be rented out to interested landowners and tree planting bars that can either be rented or purchased. More information can be found on the product page.
