Tree seedlings available at Extension Service
By Nick Roy, Agent for Agriculture & Natural Resources
Adair County Cooperative Extension Service
A limited supply of tree seedlings are now available at the Adair County Cooperative Extension Service located at 409 Fairground Street in Columbia. Available species include pawpaw, persimmon, wild plum, eastern redbud, and roughleaf dogwood. Pawpaw, persimmons, and wild plum are all fruiting species that produce edible fruits. These species are also beneficial to wildlife. Roughleaf dogwood is a small, spreading tree that reaches a height of 15-25 ft. Producing a dense thicket, it makes for great use as a hedge, border, or cover for wildlife. Eastern redbuds are known for their pink flowers in the spring and can reach a mature height of 20 to 30 ft.
Tree seedlings will be limited to 4 per home on a first come first served basis. Seedlings should be planted immediately or otherwise heeled-in. Instructions on planting and heeling in will be provided. All tree seedlings have been sourced through the Kentucky Division of Forestry. For more information, contact the Adair County Cooperative Extension Service at (270) 384-2317.
