Pierce Conservation District officials announced this week the organization will use grant funding to make a variety of trees available to the public for purchase for as little as $30, or approximately 75 per cent off the retail price.
Tree types available for purchase include pear, honeycrisp apple, dogwood, goldenrain, ginkgo, blue atlas cedar, and others. Delivery is free for customers in Pierce County, and the sale ends on Tues., March 31, or while supplies last.
Local residents are encouraged to visit the Pierce Conservation District offices, located at 5430 66th Ave. E., in Puyallup for the organization’s annual plant sale and to learn more about planting and tree care.
More information is available online at piercecountycd.org.
