JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -- Native trees, shrubs and woody vines can help improve wildlife habitat and soil and water conservation while also improving the appearance and value of private property. The Missouri Department of Conservation’s (MDC) George O. White State Nursery near Licking offers Missouri residents a variety of native seedlings for reforestation, windbreaks, erosion control, as well as for wildlife food and cover.

The State Nursery provides mainly one-year-old bare-root seedlings with sizes varying by species. Seedlings are bundled in quantities of 10, 25 or 100 per species. Prices for seedling quantities range from $6-32 per bundle. Receive a 15-percent discount up to $20 off seedling orders with a Heritage Card. Orders can be placed until April 15, 2014. Orders will be shipped or can be picked up at the State Nursery from February through May.

Seedlings varieties include pine, pecan, oak, dogwood, tulip poplar, cottonwood, sweetgum, cypress, birch, hickory, willow, persimmon, pawpaw, deciduous holly, redbud, wild plum, ninebark, witch hazel, serviceberry, mulberry, elderberry, and others.

Images of available items and detailed information can be found in the Department’s 2013-2014 Seedling Order Form catalogue. The catalogue is available in the November issue of the Missouri Conservationist, at MDC regional offices and nature centers, or by calling the State Nursery at 573-674-3229. Items can also be viewed and orders placed online at mdc.mo.gov/node/10542.

MDC’s educational campaign called Trees Work strives to grow awareness of the benefits trees and forests provide. For more information on how Trees Work for your wallet, health, family, community, environment, and economy, visit treeswork.org.
