Ordering FAQs

The Oneida County Soil & Water Conservation District offers a variety of native trees and shrubs for conservation purposes such as wildlife habitat, windbreaks, hedgerows, reforestation and stream enhancement. The plants are bareroot stock which means they do not come in pots or burlap bags, but are harvested from the field in winter when the plants are dormant and ready to be replanted. Bareroot plants are affordable, hardy, have well-developed roots, are easy to handle, transport and plant.

The Oneida County SWCD will hold its next native bareroot plant pick-up April 14 , 2012. Pre-ordering as this is the best way to ensure plant availability. For the first time ever, we are offering online ordering! To begin shopping, click here.
