West Virginia Department of Commerce nursery sells native and genetically suitable trees

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – West Virginia Division of Forestry officials at Clements State Tree Nursery are taking orders for seedlings for the 2015 spring planting season. Customers can order seedlings via the online storefront, www.wvcommerce.org/ClementsNursery, or by calling 304-675-1820. Trees are shipped by mail or available for pickup at the facility in West Columbia, 11 miles north of Point Pleasant.

Clements Nursery is West Virginia’s only forest tree nursery, selling bare-root seedlings to in-state customers and those in neighboring states. Seedlings are grown from seed sources within West Virginia and surrounding states and are either native trees or ones genetically suitable for planting in the region.

Among this year’s inventory are tulip poplar, redbud, sugar maple and sycamore. The nursery has six species of oak for sale: white, red, chestnut, sawtooth, Chinkapin and English. Two species of evergreens, Scotch pine and Norway spruce, also are available.

All trees are bare-root seedlings and are 1-2 years old. Seedlings are sold in bundles of 25. Prices depend on the number of seedlings ordered, and there is a 30 percent discount offered on orders of 5,000 or more.

The nursery will accept orders through April 30, 2015.

Order online at www.wvcommerce.org/ClementsNursery or call 304-675-1820.
