Currently only 3-gallon trees are on this listing, but as soon as the nursery finishes their inventory we will put up those available in 1, 5, 7, 10, 15 gallon sized containers.

Hi All,
For those of you interested in other tree and shrub species in additional sizes I have received a listing! I am hoping to get it in a better format for sharing soon. If you have a special request I can search the updated inventory and let you know if it is available. Email me at or call my voicemail at 765-373-9540 and leave a message. Due to Covid numbers in the County our office is limited to staff so I am currently teleworking. Thank you again for supporting the Wayne County SWCD!!

The cost-share program will provide cost-share funds to landowners located within pre-determined priority watershed areas for a variety of practices, including, but not limited to, cover crops, riparian plantings, buffer strips, water and sediment control basins, forage and biomass plantings, and nutrient management plans. Practices used to fence livestock currently accessing streams will also be funded—these include fencing, watering facilities, pipeline to watering facilities, and heavy use area pads. A small amount of funding is also available for invasive species removal and control.  Additional information can be found below:
