State nursery taking orders for next season

Clements State Tree Nursery is now taking orders for the 2013-2014 planting season.

This year’s inventory includes five evergreens: white, Virginia and Scotch pines, Norway spruce and Douglas fir.

In addition, the nursery offers 22 deciduous species, including varieties of oaks and dogwoods, sugar maple, tulip poplar and sycamore.

American chestnut seedlings grown from seed of trees that show resistance to chestnut blight are available, and usually sell out quickly.

All trees are bare-root seedlings and are 1 to 2 years old. Seedlings are sold in bundles of 25. Prices depend on the number of seedlings ordered, and there is a 30 percent discount offered on orders of 5,000 or more.

Seedlings are grown from seed sources within West Virginia and surrounding states, and are suitable for reforestation, coal mine reclamation, wildlife cover and Christmas tree production.

Order online at www.wvcommerce.org/ClementsNursery or call 304-675-1820 to request a catalog.

Seedlings can be purchased for fall or spring planting; deliveries start the week of Thanksgiving.
