Free Saplings for Northfielders @ Just Food!

To encourage the planting of native hardwood trees in Northfield and to celebrate Arbor Day on Friday April 24, the Northfield Environmental Quality Commission in collaboration with the Rice County Forestry Committee, the Rice County Master Gardeners and the DNR will provide native tree saplings free to Northfield residents who agree to plant and care for the trees on private properties in Northfield.

The free tree saplings will be distributed on a first come first served basis at Just Food Co-op (516 Water Street South) on Friday, April 24, 3–6 p.m. and Saturday, April 25, 9:30 a.m.–2 p.m. (or until they are gone). Local Master Gardeners will be on hand to provide instruction on tree selection, planting, and ongoing care.

The 8-12” saplings are bare-root stock, native tree species, cultivated from Minnesota seeds in the nursery of the Minnesota DNR. Burr Oak, Red Oak, Norway Pine, and White Pine seedlings will be available (limit four per household).

Join in helping Northfield grow a healthy native tree canopy as a gift to future generations! Family participation is encouraged! For more information, contact Suzie Nakasian of the Northfield Environmental Quality Commission 507-645-5652.
