Late-season Seedlings Available from State’s Forestry Agency

web posted March 10, 2014

TRENTON – Seedlings are still available from the Forestry Commission’s Taylor Nursery for landowners who’ve postponed winter planting because of wet conditions or who were set back due to the recent ice storm. Of particular interest are the containerized 3rd generation loblolly, which are available at bareroot prices now for landowner acquiring seedlings in bulk. 

This varietal offers an extended planting season so it will appeal to landowners still wishing to get trees in the ground before spring.

Additionally, SCFC has a number of other hard and softwood selections remaining.  Availability and purchasing information can be found at http://www.trees.sc.gov/nur.htm or by calling (803) 275-3578 Monday through Friday (8am to 4:30pm).  Seedlings are grown and picked-up at Taylor Nursery near Edgefield, South Carolina:  53 Girl Scout Camp Road, Trenton, SC  29847.  UPS shipping is also available for all species.

SCFC offers a wide variety of species and products to meet the ever-changing needs of large and small landowners to include wildlife plantings, windbreaks, streamside buffers, longleaf pine - wiregrass ecosystem restoration, wetland mitigation/restoration, and rooted cuttings and seedlings for Christmas trees.  Sales will continue through March.

The South Carolina Forestry Commission has grown and distributed more than 2.5 billion forest tree seedlings since it began operating in 1928.  It is the agency’s mission to provide high quality, improved seedlings for the landowners of South Carolina.  These landowners are the foundation of our state’s forest economy which provides 90,000 jobs and $17 billion annually in direct economic impact.
