West Virginia Seedlings Available to Ohio Residents - Nursery taking orders through April 30

WEST COLUMBIA, W.Va. – Ohio landowners in search of bare-root seedlings need only look to their eastern neighbor. West Virginia’s Clements State Tree Nursery will accept orders through April 30, 2014. The nursery sells bare-root seedlings that are suitable for reforestation, coal mine reclamation, wildlife cover and Christmas tree production. Seedlings are grown from seed collected within West Virginia and surrounding states and are suitable for planting in Ohio.

“Clements State Tree Nursery grows seedlings native to our region plus a few introduced species that provide specific benefits to landowners,” said W.Va. State Forester Randy Dye. “Native trees provide excellent wildlife habitat and, because they generally grow well, require less maintenance than non-native or exotic species.”

Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Forestry Chief Robert Boyles said that purchasing seedlings from Clements to plant in Ohio is a sound forest management decision.

“Ohio landowners are encouraged to work with professional foresters to develop management plans for their woodlands, and choosing to plant seedlings grown at Clements State Tree Nursery as part of those plans can be a sound forest management decision,” said Boyles.

All trees are bare-root seedlings and are 1 to 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.
