Order Time for Tree Seedlings

“One of the least expensive ways to improve your property is to plant trees on it. All it takes is $10 to order a thousand seedlings from the Conservation Department, a minimum of one acre of open land, and a strong back and/or as much help as you can muster.”

MCA Newsletter December 1969

Can you identify any of these seedlings that are now 50 year old trees? Do you remember planting during this initiative?
