Every year, the Mason-Lake Conservation District, AFFEW, and the Mason County Garden Club offer sales for tree seedlings, plants, bulbs, and native plants.
Orders for the Mason-Lake Conservation District’s Spring Tree Sale are usually accepted until early April with pickup held in late April at the Mason County Fairgrounds. Pre-order deadline and pick up dates will be listed here as soon as the information becomes available. Pick up is generally held at the Mason County Fairgrounds Community Building.
The Mason-Lake Conservation District Fall Tree Sale is annually held in October. It is conducted by pre-orders only.
Conservation books and conservation products will also be available for sale.
*Fall tree planting is recommended only for conifers on coarse textured soil (sand and loamy sands), soil that is well or moderately well drained.
The annual Mason-Lake Conservation District Tree Seedling Sale is held in the spring with pre-orders accepted. Order early for best selection.
Planting a tree can be very beneficial to the health of the environment. Earth Day and Arbor Day at the end of April is a great time to plant trees, being the first opportunity where the ground is usually warm enough to plant. To learn more about the importance of trees in the environment, you can read our story Make a Positive Environmental Impact this Arbor Day!
May & September, 2023
The Mason County Garden Club holds two plant sales annually at Leveaux Park, one in May and the other in September. The sales are held at Leveaux Park, East Ludington Avenue near Madison Street, in Ludington. It is a great time to get various plants and bulbs to brighten up your garden. You can either bring a plant to exchange, or you can purchase a plant if you don’t have any to exchange.
The Annual Native Plant Sale in mid-June is hosted by AFFEW at Rotary Park, downtown Ludington. There are also a variety of plants available for purchase on pick-up day as well. Native plants are great for any landscape and are highly tolerant to year-round weather conditions in Michigan. They are also more resistant to pests, disease and drought.
