Tree & Shrub Sale Announced

Posted on: February 23rd, 2018 by Leslie_Zucker

The Ulster Coun­ty Soil and Water Con­ser­va­tion District’s home office in High­land, NY is announc­ing their annu­al tree and shrub sale.

The order form must be received by Fri­day, March 30, 2018.

Many of the species includ­ed in the sale are native to the Ashokan water­shed and make great addi­tions to stream­side veg­e­ta­tion.  Healthy and diverse stream­side veg­e­ta­tion plays an impor­tant role in sta­bi­liz­ing stream­banks and help­ing resist erosion.

We are espe­cial­ly fond of sand­bar wil­low, Amer­i­can sycamore and red osier dog­wood for stream­side set­tings.  If you are look­ing for Ashokan natives for an upland set­ting, con­sid­er sug­ar maple, swamp white oak and Amer­i­can cranberry.

For stream buffer relat­ed ques­tions or help select­ing appro­pri­ate veg­e­ta­tion, con­tact Bob­by Tay­lor, Ulster Co. SWCD and AWSMP Catskill Streams Buffer Coor­di­na­tor at or call (845) 688‑3047 x6.
