Crow Wing Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) is hosting the 13th annual tree and plant pre-order sale program.

SWCD sells low-cost native tree seedlings, flowers, grasses and seed mixes. The public can pre-order and purchase plants until March 1.

Pre-orders before Feb. 9 receive the Early Bird Bucks: $5 off every $50 spent.

District technician Darren Mayers ordered the plants.

“This year the sale features 16 tree species, nine shrubs species and 18 plant species. We also sell planting kits and seeds for landowners who want more variety. Kits contain 36 plugs of six plant species. Seed packets contain dozens of species in each bag and cover 500 square feet. Three mixes include: urban habitat oasis, shoreline buffer and rain garden. We only sell native plants from businesses in Minnesota,” Mayers said.

To pre-order trees and plants, complete the SWCD order form and submit with payment to SWCD Office, 322 Laurel St., Suite 13 in Brainerd. To receive Early Bird Bucks, orders must be placed by Feb. 9.

To receive an order form, visit, email or call 218-828-6197.
