Chippewa Rod & Gun and Lake Wissota Garden clubs
Tree & Birdhouse Fundraiser
The Chippewa Rod & Gun and Lake Wissota Garden clubs are taking orders for their annual Tree and Birdhouse Sale March 1 through March 31.
Please visit http://www.rodngun.org or http://lakewissotagardenclub.weebly.com for more information and an order form. Quantities are limited, and orders are filled by their postmark date. Orders will be ready for pick-up on April 25th.
Available this year are over 20 varieties of seedling and larger bare-root trees and shrubs. Bare-root trees and shrubs are affordable, convenient to transport, and easy to transplant in a home landscape or throughout a multi-acre plot. New this year are Swamp White Oak, American Black Elderberry, and Sandbar Willow. Bluebird, wood duck, wren, bat, and bee houses will also be for sale.
Focusing on native tree and shrub varieties, these bare-root seedlings are inexpensive and can be purchased in quantities of 1 to 100 plus, allowing both residential and large landowners to purchase trees for their properties. Planting these rootstock evergreen, deciduous, fruit and nut trees and shrubs can improve pollinator and wildlife habitat, help with shoreline erosion, provide for deer browse, help establish a woodlot, and beautify yards and gardens. This fundraising project has offered locally sourced bare-root seedling trees from Paint Creek Nursery for sale to the public since 1996. Proceeds from the sale fund projects of the Lake Wissota Garden Club and the Chippewa Rod & Gun Club including scholarships for students in conservation and horticulture programs, fish and wildlife habitat improvements, further development of the Irvine Park Wildflower Sanctuary and support of other conservation and beautification efforts in the community.
