Licking County Soil & Water Conservation District is proud to offer 20 native species for the annual tree seedling sale. 

Trees are such an important part of our daily life. 

We appreciate their beauty as leaves change colors in the fall and their shade on a hot summer day.  We look forward to their buds bursting open in spring.  But trees do so much more for us every day.  They give us: 

- clean air to breathe by absorbing carbon dioxide and expelling oxygen;

- they slow down raindrops to protect our soil from eroding;

- their roots loosen the compacted soil so stormwater soaks in;

- they help us save money on energy bills, and

- they increase our property values

 

 

Native Evergreen Trees

Pine trees are one of the most varied and widely spread genus of native tree species in North America. Adapted to so many environments, pine trees are hardy survivors in their native habitat. The pine trees of North America were used by Native Americans for treatments of respiratory ailments, in canoe building and even as food. Today native pines are one of the most valuable commercial timber sources and continue to be used for construction, furniture, pulpwood, land management and more.
