Plymouth's 2015 Tree & Shrub Sale features Austrian PineHand-Picked Plants for Plymouth
Each year, City of Plymouth forestry staff selects plants that are well-adapted to local growing conditions, including Plymouth's clay-heavy soil. The plants listed below were selected because of their resistance to pests and disease. They also serve as good replacements for invasive species, such as buckthorn; provide food and shelter for pollinators, butterflies and other wildlife; and will add beauty and color to the yard.

Most of the trees are 5-6 feet at time of purchase. Some species come in pots, but most are bare-root. That means they do not come with soil on the roots, so they cost less, have up to 200 percent more roots than the traditional balled and burlapped plants and are easier to transport. Bare root trees are easy to plant, using the bare root planting method.

Trees and shrubs do not come with a warranty. Quantities are limited on some varieties. Orders will be filled on a "first come" basis.
