Trees program offers seedlings

EAGLE RIVER, Wis. — A tradition since 1945, Trees For Tomorrow announces the arrival of four types of tree seedlings available now for pre-purchase.

TFT originally offered two seedlings for every tree cut in support of the war effort. The purpose was to encourage land owners to plant trees and practice sound forest management principles. This tradition continues today.

Seedlings may be purchased now on pre-sale, and will be available for pick-up or shipping in mid-May. The 2-year-old seedlings include red Norway pine, northern white cedar, white spruce hybrid, and white pine.

These tree species are chosen because they are heartier and do well in the sandy soils of the Northwoods. Cost is $1.50 per seedling. Proceeds support educational programs at Trees For Tomorrow.
