Fall Native Tree and Shrub Sale

Each fall, CFC offers a large variety of native trees and shrubs. This annual sale is pre-order only (online) and occurs during the last two weeks of August. 

Native trees and shrubs are a great addition to any landscape as they attract a wide variety of birds and other wildlife. Some species are known to be extraordinarily attractive with their gorgeous flowers, colorful fruit, and impressive fall displays. Fall is an excellent time of year to plant trees and shrubs because the soil is warm and the air temperatures are cool, which gives the trees and shrubs a great opportunity to establish roots prior to winter. Once spring arrives, the plants are ready to start growing quickly before the heat and stress of summer happens. 

The fall tree and shrub sale is run completely by volunteers. A great thank you to all who have helped in past events as these native plant sales would not be possible without their assistance.
