Deadline extended to order tree seedlings in state
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- West Virginia forestry officials are extending the deadline to order tree seedlings.
The state Division of Forestry pushed the deadline back two weeks until April 30.
Officials told the Charleston Daily Mail that the move will give landowners more time to survey their properties and determine what type of seedlings they need to order.
The Clements State Tree Nursery in West Columbia has a surplus of several species including sugar maple, white oak, black walnut, tulip poplar and sycamore.
All trees are bare-root seedlings and are 1 to 2 years old. Seedlings are sold in bundles of 25 and can be mailed to the customer or picked up from the nursery.
