About Plymouth’s Tree & Shrub Sale
Each year, Plymouth city staff selects plants that are well-adapted to local growing conditions and resistant to pests and diseases. They serve as good replacements for ash trees affected by Emerald Ash Borer or invasive species, such as buckthorn. They also provide food and shelter for pollinators, butterflies and other wildlife.

Most of the trees are 5-6 feet tall at the time of purchase and are bare-root, which means they do not have soil on the roots. Bare-root trees cost less, are easier to transport and have up to 200 percent more roots than the traditional balled and burlapped plants. They are also easy to plant. Evergreen species come in pots and are 2-3 feet tall, while shrubs are bare root and 2-3 feet tall.
