The Yalobusha County Soil and Water Conservation District will provide seedlings to the public at no cost. Trees will be given out on first-come-first-serve basis. The seedlings will be given away on Thursday, Feb. 22 starting at 9 a.m. at the USDA Service Center on Front Street in Coffeeville.
There will be a variety of oak seedlings available. Seedlings are bare root and will need to be kept moist and cool until planting. Seedlings should be planted within the next couple days after being received.
The Soil and Water District encourages all citizens to be conscious of the natural beauty of trees and the role they play in protecting our environment, beautifying our landscapes, and providing food and shelter for our wildlife.
