Tree Seedling Sale Benefits Environment, Education

Help support a great cause, improve the environment and beautify your property by participating in the 36th annual York County Conservation District Tree Seedling Sale.

Featured in this year’s sale are several plants native to this area as well as an impressive variety of fruit-bearing trees and shrubs that will provide food for years to come.

Proceeds from the sale support the Conservation District’s educational programming, including the wildly popular Envirothon program. The four-day event, which tests students’ mastery of topics related to the environment, attracted nearly 1,000 participants last year.
