Feb 17, 2014 — ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) The state-run Saratoga Tree Nursery has begun its spring sale of more than 40 species of trees and shrubs, which are available to public and private landowners and schools.
The program provides low-cost, native planting materials to encourage landowners to enhance the state's environment for future generations.
The Saratoga Tree Nursery also offers a few non-native species for wildlife plantings and stream bank stabilization. For instance, Toringo crabapple provides a winter food source for wild turkey, grouse and deer. Streamco willow is used in many stabilization projects.
The 2014 Tree and Shrub brochure can be found on the DEC's website (http://bit.ly/1jteYai ).
