On Tuesday, February 2, 2021 the Northern VA Soil & Water Conservation District will accept online orders for our annual native tree and shrub seedling sale. The 2021 bare-root seedling sale features small shrubs and trees native to Virginia which are hardy in small spaces and bear gorgeous flowers and fruits, and display beautiful colors.
Purchase your seedling packages online, at: https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/soil-water-conservation/native-seedling-sale
You must purchase your seedlings in advance, no day of sales or extras will be offered. A full, nonrefundable payment must accompany your order.
You will receive a confirmation receipt and directions to the pickup site compliant with COVID safety guidelines at the Sleepy Hollow Bath and Racquet Club in Falls Church. Orders must be picked up on Friday, April 16 or Saturday, April 17, 2021, otherwise they will be donated to a reforestation project in Fairfax County.
Online ordering also includes premade rain barrels, tumbling composter kits and Plant NOVA Natives Guides.
This program is offered in partnership with the Virginia Department of Forestry’s Potomac Work Area and Fairfax County’s Urban Forestry Management Division.
In addition, the Virginia Department of Forestry needs help in counting all of the trees and shrubs planted through our sale, as well as other trees planted over the next four years. Every tree makes a difference in protecting and improving water quality. Residents may add their planted trees to the My Tree Counts app: https://arcg.is/WryDG. On this app, residents can report their tree and shrub plantings made since October 1, 2020, read about other tree planting projects in Virginia, and learn why trees are so good at protecting water quality.
