The South Carolina Forestry Commission is now taking orders for seedlings for the winter planting season.
The complete catalog and a printable order form can be found online at trees.sc.gov/nur.htm.
The new edition features enhanced product descriptions and new artwork depicting our selections’ seasonal appearances in drawings by Texas artist Robert O’Brien.
Additionally, Seedling Price Guides with quick-order forms are available at most SC Forestry Commission offices statewide.
The Forestry Commission now has its fastest-growing loblolly pine seedlings in containers for improved survival and early growth after planting. Stock has been developed specifically for South Carolina’s regional climates and soils.
Customers can order with confidence as they have our agency foresters on hand to assist them in their forestland management goals.
For the 2014-2015 planting season, 17 softwood and 14 hardwood and other plant selections are available. Seven of these products are now available in containers.
Seedling orders can be placed by mail: S.C. Forestry Commission; P.O. Box 21707; Columbia, SC 29221.
Seedlings can be delivered via UPS or be picked up at Taylor Nursery (53 Girl Scout Camp Rd., Trenton, SC). For more information, call Taylor Nursery at (803) 275-3578.
The South Carolina Forestry Commission has been providing healthy and dependable tree seedlings since 1928 and takes great pride in its role in establishing the valuable forest resource our state has today. Landowners who plant seedlings from the Forestry Commission are part of an industry which supports 90,000 jobs in South Carolina and impacts our state economy by $17 billion annually.
