Spring Apple Trees....

We will be selling Golden Delicious (self pollinating) Apple trees again this spring. We will be getting 5/8" caliper and Bud 118 root stock. As of right now the price will be around $16.50 per tree but the more trees we order, the more of a price break we can get/give. The trees are to be used for conservation purposes only, they should not be planted on CRP acres. Let us know if you would like any. Call us at 815-772-2124 ext 3 or email - whitesidecountyswcd@hotmail.com. Thank you.
