2023 DEC Saratoga Tree Nursery Sale

| Uncategorized

Well, it is that time of year again and the annual NYDEC Tree Sale is on! Select verities do sell out quickly so make sure you have your order ready to go on January 3rd. The last day to order is May 12th and they will contact you with pick-up/shipping information. The great news is their stock has healthy and typically huge roots, so they have higher success rates than some of the other mail order tree services. The downside is you have to order in quantities of at least 25 and sometimes more. This is a great option for someone with a large project or if several people want to put in an order together and then divvy them up later.

While they have great stock not all of it is native to NY and an even smaller amount are not native to the USA. In order to confirm status we had to ask the DEC for scientific names and then ran them through the New York Flora Atlas. Those marked as “Unknown” might be a cultivar or the scientific name was partial or not included. Here is a cliff note version of our work:
