Plymouth's Annual Tree Sale orders are being accepted now through April 16th, 2012 for 23 different varieties of trees and shrubs.
Orders will be available for pick-up from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sat., April 28 at the Maintenance Facility, 14900 23rd Ave. N. Quantities are limited so orders will be filled on a “first come” basis.
Use Plymouth’s online recreation registration system to order and pay for your selections. A participation number and family pin are required. If you do not have one, you can easily sign up by calling 763-509-5200 during regular business hours, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, and 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesday. Online payment is accepted, using Visa, MasterCard or Discover credit cards.
Orders can also be placed by mail to City of Plymouth, 14900 23rd Ave. N., Plymouth, MN 55447 – attention, Lara Newberger – or delivered in person to the Maintenance Facility during regular business hours, 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Payment is due when the order is placed.
The wide variety of trees offered will make it easy to add diversity to any yard. This will help guard against losses of large portions of the city’s trees to a single disease or pest, like Dutch elm disease or the emerald ash borer. Selections that make good replacements for buckthorn are also available.
Except for the conifers, which come in pots, the trees and shrubs are bare-root. That means they do not come with soil on the roots. It also means that they cost less, have up to 200 percent more roots and are easier to transport and plant than the traditional balled and burlapped plants.
The conifers are three to four feet tall, the deciduous trees are four to six feet tall and the shrubs are 18 to 20 inches tall. Tree prices start as low as $12 and shrubs are all priced at $6.
