You can purchase seedlings March 23 to the 25 from the Oklahoma Forestry Services. 

The state is hosting sales across Green Country.

•  Wednesday, March 23 – 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. Muskogee – Muskogee County Conservation District – 3001 Azalea Park Drive

•  Thursday, March 24 – 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. – Tulsa – MET Recycling Center , 1101 S. Cincinnati

•   Friday, March 25 – 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. – Pryor – Tractor Supply, 935 S. Mill Street

There will also be state foresters on hand to answer questions about plants you currently have at home. 

“Come by the seedling sale and take advantage of the opportunity to visit with a professional forester about your trees,” said George Geissler, Oklahoma State Forester.   “And if you decide to buy seedlings, you’ll be getting trees that thrive in Oklahoma.”

The seedlings are grown at the Oklahoma Forestry Services’ State Nursery, located south of Norman, from local seed sources that are selected specifically because they perform well in Oklahoma’s diverse environment. Seedlings are bare-root, one or two years old, 10 to 30 inches in height and are sold in bundles of 50. 

Species that will be available, while supplies last, include: Oriental arborvitae, Arizona cypress, baldcypress, roughleaf dogwood, eastern redbud, lacebark elm, Rocky Mountain juniper, common lilac, Shumard oak, northern red oak, white oak, native pecan, ponderosa pine, Scotch pine, Virginia pine, American plum, fragrant sumac, sycamore and black walnut.

A catalog with more seedling information, including pricing, is available on the online store at www.forestry.ok.gov/order-seedlings.
