Spring Creek High School and the Silver Sage FFA Chapter are once again holding their annual tree sale fundraiser to bring northeastern Nevadans a wide selection of conservation plant material at reasonable costs.

The tree and shrub seedlings range in price from $5.50 to $15.00 each, depending on the size of the seedling and container. Plants are for conservation purposes on at least one acre of land.

Plants are sold on a pre-order basis only. The deadline to place a pre-order is May 9th, 2013.  Pre-orders are to be picked up on either May 17th or 18th at the Spring Creek High School greenhouse, nine miles southeast on the Lamoille Highway.

Order forms and a list of the plants with associated costs, can be obtained by visiting the Nevada Division of Forestry website http://forestry.nv.gov/ndf-state-forest-nurseries/trees-on-wheels-program/, or by contacting: Ryan Shane, 775-738-3454, rshane@forestry.nv.gov.

Or pick-up an order form at one of the following locations:

  • Spring Creek High School
  • Spring Creek Association      Office
  • NRCS Elko Office
  • NV Cooperative Extension      Offices
  • NDF Spring Creek Fire      Station #24
  • NDF Conservation Camps      (Carlin and Wells)
  • NDF Regional Headquarters      in Elko

Plant materials are from the Nevada Division of Forestry Nursery in Washoe Valley and are selected for their adaptability to our region’s soils and climate. There are 30 different species of shrubs, deciduous trees, and evergreen trees available this fall. The plants come to Elko as container stock, making them easy to take home and transplant.
