POSTED ON BEHALF OF THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI EXTENSION OFFICE IN JASPER COUNTY
The Jasper County University of Missouri Extension Center now has Missouri Department of Conservation order forms for seedling trees and shrubs. Since 1947 the George O. White State Forest Nursery near Licking has offered Missouri residents seedlings for reforestation, windbreaks, erosion control and wildlife habitat.
Seedling bundles range from $6 to $32 plus sales tax and handling. Prices for each species are listed on the order form. It also outlines the ordering procedure.
The time you place your order - not the delivery date - determines your priority for reserving trees. It is important to place orders as soon as possible because reservations for trees are made on a "first-come, first-serve" basis until supplies are depleted. Each year many species sell out quickly.
You may have your trees shipped to you, or you may pick them up at the George O. White Nursery near Licking, MO.
University of Missouri Guide Sheets: G5008 "How to Plant Forest Trees", G5006 "Before You Order Tree Seedlings", G5900 "Planning Tree Windbreaks in Missouri" and G5009 "Mechanical Tree Planters" are among those available online at extension.missouri.edu or at the University of Missouri Extension Center in each county.
For additional information, or to order trees online, go to mdc.mo.gov/node/3328. You can also contact the Jasper County University of Missouri Extension Center located in the Courthouse Basement, Carthage, MO or call 417-358-2158.
University of Missouri Extension improves people’s lives with education and research from the four campuses of the University of Missouri System and Lincoln University that focuses on high-priority needs of people throughout the state. Each County Extension Center, with oversight by locally elected and appointed citizens, is your local link to these unbiased resources.
