The Linn County Chapter of the Oregon Small Woodlands Association (LCSWA) is proud to announce its annual Seedling Sale and Goods from the Woods Fair. Portions of the proceeds will be used to fund the chapter’s youth educational programs in Linn County. These programs include 4-H forestry activities and college scholarships for students seeking a degree related to forestry or natural resources. This is a great investment in our forestry future!

For the best selection, we encourage you to pre-order and pay for your seedlings using the order form below. Your pre-paid order will reserve the seedlings for you. We will have them packed and ready for pick-up on sale day between 8 am and 11 am. Simply fill out the order form, include a check made payable to LCSWA for the amount due and mail to LCSWA, c/o Bonnie Marshall, 705 SW Larkspur Ct, Sublimity, OR 97385. All pre-orders need to be submitted by January 19, 2019.

The ‘Goods from the Woods’ Art Fair will be held in conjunction with the seedling sale again this year. If you like artistic hand-made products crafted from native woods, this is the event for you!

Our seedlings come directly from the nursery and will be either bare root or plugs. If available, we have included the size description on the order form. Those listed as ‘plug’ were raised in the nursery and may come as a small or medium ‘plug’. Seedling sizes such as 1-0, 1-1 and 2-0 indicate years grown in their original seed bed (the first number) followed by years in a transplant bed (the second number). Where possible, we have listed the height of the seedling in inches. Seedlings native to our area are marked with an asterisk on the order form.

In addition to seedlings, there will also be seedling protector tubes with sticks available on a first come, first served basis. Tubes are useful for protecting your seedlings from animal browse. Same day purchases may be paid for with either cash or check.

The order form includes a plant description information sheet which provides more specific information about the plants available: if they are a native species, how tall they grow, if they prefer sun or shade, dry or moist soil conditions, if they attract birds, what color their flowers are, and other highlights about the plant. An information table will be set up at the sale where you can view plant samples, see pictures and read additional information about the seedlings. An OSU trained Master Woodland Manager will be there to answer questions and identify which trees may be best suited for a particular location.
