SPRING PLANTING

SPRING PLANTING 2019

We will be planting trees in Rutledge on

Saturday, April 27th!

Take advantage of this amazing opportunity to purchase 12-Foot Trees for an incredible bargain! Save on the cost of delivery and planting by participating in our 1-day Rutledge community planting - we will have Certified PHS Tree Tenders available to assist with every tree. If you have seen your neighbors' trees and thought about planting in your own front yard - now is your chance!

Once again we have partnered with the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society to provide some awesome bare-root 8- 12-Foot Trees for only $40. These trees must serve as "street trees" and will be planted in the public right-of-way, which is about 20' into your front yard.

Below is the list and lots of photos of the trees we will have for this planting. Click on the latin names for detailed information on each tree. If you see something you like, email rutledge.shadetree@gmail.com ASAP! We look forward to putting you on our list!

We are taking orders now!
