2013 Tree Sale Catalog
|2013 ORDER FORM|
MCCD Board of Directors and Staff would like to thank the residents of Marquette County for your continued support of our natural resources through restoration and conservation practices.
The annual tree sale is our largest fundraising event for the year. All proceeds go back to District programs that are free or low cost to all Marquette County residents.
Following are brief descriptions of our offerings this year. Click on the links for more information and photos. Enjoy exploring our gallery!
Conifers are planted for a variety of reasons, including windbreaks
and shelterbelts, wildlife corridors, plantations and screens. Conifer
seedlings are smaller and less expensive than transplants—a good
choice for large plantings. Transplants are a bit taller and much
sturdier but a little more difficult to plant. They are an excellent
choice for screens and windbreaks.

Deciduous trees and shrubs provide excellent food for a variety of songbirds. Some are also attractive to other wildlife species such as deer and grouse. Most of the trees and shrubs listed will do best when planted in full or nearly full sunlight. Be sure to fit the right plant for your soil type. For maximum wildlife benefit, plant a variety that will provide food throughout the year.

All of our apple trees are partially self-fruitful. For the best fruit production we recommend cross pollinating with another variety. An early bloomer will cross pollinate with another early- or mid-season bloomer. A late bloomer will work with another late- or mid-season bloomer. Mid-season bloomers will work with any of the bloomers. All trees are semi-dwarf and should reach 15' tall at maturity. The root stocks chosen are best suited to our climate and for dry, sandy soils. Root stock and caliper are subject to substitutions.
NEW for 2013, we will be offering standard size apple trees! Standard size trees are those growing on seedling rootstock. With good pruning, these trees will attain a height of 20-25'. Standard apple trees may take longer to bear fruit, but once they get started, they will produce more fruit than the semi-dwarf varieties. At this point, you will need a ladder or fruit picker to help you harvest the fruit, and family and friends to help you enjoy it! Trees are noted if standard size.

We are offering new varieties of cherry, pear, plum and flowering crab trees this year! These trees are self-fruitful, meaning they will produce their own fruit. However they can be pollinated with another variety to produce heavier yields. Our pears and plums are standard size. Also, check out the newly offered Arctic kiwi!

We are offering two varieties of blueberries this year as well as a raspberry and black raspberry! All of our blueberries are two years old and raspberries are one year old. Two year old thimbleberries are also new this year.
