Time to order seedlings for spring planting


West Columbia, W.Va. – Spring is almost here and now is the perfect time to order tree seedlings for your planting projects. Whether you are planting 100 acres or just sprucing up your landscape, Clements State Tree Nursery has a wide selection from which to choose.

Tall-growing species like white, red and chestnut oaks are perfect for large areas with no overhead obstructions like utility lines. Oaks are versatile and can be used for shade, lumber and food for animals. Red oaks, which are common throughout West Virginia, thrive in city environments and are ideal for planting in urban areas.

Smaller-growing species like dogwood and redbud are great additions to yards and landscapes. Both bloom in the spring, bringing much-needed color to dreary landscapes.

Other species available from the nursery include Norway spruce, Virginia and white pine, shagbark hickory, American plum, Chinese chestnut and sugar maple.

Prices range from 15 cents per tree to $1 per tree, depending on the number of seedlings ordered. There is a 20 percent discount offered on orders of 5,000 or more. Seedlings are sold in bundles of 25 – plenty for you to plant and share with friends and family.

Orders can be placed three ways: online at www.wvcommerce.org/ClementsNursery; mailed to Clements State Tree Nursery, 624 Forestry Drive, West Columbia, WV 25287; or phoned in to 304-675-1820.

Order forms and a catalog are available at www.wvforestry.com.
