Annual Tree and Trout Sale

Our 2020 Tree Sale is now live!

About the 2020 Sale

–> See our 2020 Sale Brochure here. <—- (Huge thanks to our Communications Volunteer Caitlin Maloney for her work on this!)

We have two pick-up locations this year! Both pick-ups are on Saturday April 25th 2020, 9 am – 12 pm at either of the following locations (please note your intended pick up location either on the printed order form or, if ordering online, in the “city” box at check out):

  • 111 West Street, Essex Junction, VT
  • 617 Comstock Road, Berlin, VT

Early bird pricing through February 28, 2020, all orders due by March 30, 2020.

Our 2020 sale highlights the best native trees and shrubs to invite birds into your backyard! Our species list was built in collaboration with Audubon Vermont and we thank them for their support and recommendations. Find the Audubon Vermont Logo on their recommended species both in the brochure, and as part of the photos for species listed online. To learn more about plants for birds, you can catch us with Audubon Vermont’s Gwen Causer at Big Picture Theatre and Cafe, 48 Carroll Road, Waitsfield VT on February 11th, 1-2:30 pm or explore

This year we went local with over 30% of our stock from four Vermont nurseries meaning you get the trees raised in, and rugged enough for Vermont’s variable climate.

How to Order Trees

Option 1: If using ecommerce below, click “add to cart” for all trees you’d like, and at check-out, follow link to paypal to process final payment. Clicking on any species will provide more details about the birds it supports and allow you to order more than one of that species. Enter either “Essex Juntion” or “Berlin” in the city line at check-out so we know where you plan to pick up your trees.

Option 2: Download an order form in either excel or PDF (note that excel will autocalculate your amount due). Then either print completed form and mail to us, or save and email to us. Form includes our contact information and other instructions. Note that availability is less often updated on these order forms and we may need to contact you to adjust your order. The Winooski NRCD shares office space with the Federal Natural Resources Conservation Service. Due to COVID-19, as of 3/13/2020 we are preparing to work remotely should federal offices be shut down. As such we may not receive your mailed-in orders. We appreciate your support and will be happy to help all customers submit an online order. If you need assistance please call us at either 802-828-4493 or 802-288-8155 X 104. If we miss your call please leave a clear message with your name and phone number and we will get back to you as soon as we can. We apologize for this inconvenience. We appreciate everyone’s patience and hope everyone in the District is staying safe and healthy.

Thank you for your support !

WNRCD would like to express our thanks to our 2020 Tree & Trout Sale Event Sponsor & Partner:

The Winooski Natural Resources Conservation District (WNRCD) hosts the annual tree and trout sale as a service to residents of the District.  We offer a wide selection of tree and shrub species for home, garden, and conservation projects.  All proceeds from this fundraiser are used to develop and implement on-the-ground projects that protect our natural resources including riparian and shoreline buffer plantings, storm water mitigation, fish habitat restoration, and culvert replacements. We sell bare-root stock trees at affordable prices so you can implement conservation practices on your own property.
