Seedling Sale -----

The Linn County Chapter of Oregon Small Woodlands Association (LCSWA) is sponsoring a seedling sale on Saturday, February 7, 2014.  The location is the Santiam Building at the Linn County Fair and Expo Center, 3700 Knox Butte Road in Albany. This is near I-5, Exit 234. The time is from 8:00 a.m. to noon or while supplies last. It is best to come early or to pre-order and pre-pay using the order form.

We have attached an ORDER FORM Native species are marked with an asterisk on the order form. As in prior years, you may pre-order your seedlings. Your pre-paid order will reserve the seedlings for you packed and ready for pick up on sale day between the hours of 8 – 11 a.m. Simply fill out the order form and send it, along with a check made payable to LCSWA and mail to Sherm Sallee, 30560 Santiam River Road, Lebanon OR 97355.

Some of the trees are excellent for smaller places around a home, flower in the spring and/or have nice fall colored leaves. Seedlings will be bare root or plugs. All seedlings come directly from the nursery. 

At the sale, an information table will be set up to view plant samples, see pictures and read information about the seedlings. An OSU Extension trained Master Woodland Manager will be there to answer questions and provide information on which trees are best suited for a particular planting site.

Portions of the money earned will be used to help fund the Linn County Chapter’s educational programs for youth in Linn County. These include forestry related camps and college scholarships. 

At the last three year’s seedling sales, there has been a “Goods from the Woods” event with forest products. While this year’s list of participants has not been finalized, we will again have vendors with their products available for view and sale.

If you have any questions please contact:

Fay or Sherm Sallee, (541) 451-5322.
