Free tree and shrub planning advice courtesy of CFC’s Habitat Corridors experts

If you would like help planning tree and shrub purchases at our upcoming plant sale, a Citizens for Conservation Habitat Corridors volunteer will visit your property free of charge, identify existing native plants and make recommendations for additions that are beneficial for wildlife, children and homeowners. Suggestions can range from rainwater solutions to invasive species identification to adding specific native plants. Our volunteers can help you plan tree and shrub purchases from our fall sale by making recommendations for woody plants that will thrive on your site.

Fall is a great time to plant trees and shrubs. Roots can become  established before winter’s cold weather, and less irrigation is necessary than when planting in the spring. Native trees and shrubs provide the best woody plant options because they absorb storm water, survive our extreme temperatures, never need fertilizer or insecticides and need watering only during the first year or two to get established.

Online ordering for CFC’s fall native tree and shrub sale begins August 13th and ends August 31st. CFC members receive a 10% discount.

Interested homeowners can arrange a site visit by emailing  [email protected].
