HARRISBURG – The Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) has asked PLNA to advise its member nurseries that it is looking for sources of 1½ to 2½ inch caliper bare root trees for its “TreeViltalize” tree planting program.
DCNR estimates that communities in the program will require between three and four thousand trees annually for the state-wide tree planting program. They are seeking a wide variety of both native and non-invasive non-native species.
The trees will be used for street-side plantings, parks and other community projects. DCNR prefers bare root trees because they are more easily handled by the volunteers that typically plant the trees.
If your nursery can be a source of 1½ to 2½ inch caliper bare root stock, you are encouraged to contact:
