Conservation district tree seedlings free Monday

Free tree seedlings will be offered to the public from 10 a.m. until noon, Monday in front of the Crittenden County Conservation District office located at 118 E. Bellville St. in Marion.

This year’s offerings include pecan, northern red, willow oak, bald cypress, persimmon and cherrybark oak. The willow oak, bald cypress and pecan seedlings were purchased by the Crittenden County Conservation District. The Kentucky Division of Forestry matched this purchase with the persimmon, northern red oak and cherrybark oak.

The conservation district encourages persons throughout Crittenden County only, urban and rural, to take advantage of this opportunity. However, quantities will be limited per person.
