KCD’s Native Plant Sale

KCD’s Native Plant Sale and Community Fair is held every year between February and March. Orders are taken online starting in November.

The sale offers a variety of native trees and shrubs for conservation purposes such as wildlife habitat, windbreaks, hedgerows, reforestation and stream enhancement. They also work great on home and garden projects. A majority of the plants offered are bareroot stock which means they do not come in pots or burlap bags, but are harvested from the field in winter when the plants are dormant and ready to be replanted. Bareroot plants are affordable, hardy, have well-developed roots, and are easy to handle, transport and plant.

We do sell out of plants, so order early for the best deals and availability!
