Native varieties of trees and shrubs available through Kenosha County Tree Program
A wide variety of trees and shrubs are available for sale through the Kenosha County Tree Program. Kenosha County has offered these native species for more than 25 years and, in that time, nearly one million trees have been sold. The purpose of the program is to promote conservation and to help area residents to plant a more beautiful, healthy, and ecologically balanced environment. The program offers transplants and seedlings of a variety of pines, hardwoods, and shrubs in bundles of 25 at a cost of $20-$25 per bundle. Varieties of trees and shrubs change from year-to-year depending upon availability, weather conditions, past sales success, tree performance, and general demand trends. This year, among various other species, available are White Pine, Frasier Fir, Black Walnut, White Flowering Dogwood, Canoe Birch, Hazel Nut, Lilacs, Oaks, and Maples. The sale is open to the interested public in the Kenosha County area.
