Bare-root trees, shrubs, perennials, and vines can be purchased in lots of 25, 30, and 5. This is great for areas that need a large number of trees. This is also great for splitting orders with family, friends, and neighbors. Deadline for all orders is April 10th, 2020 and pick up will be at the Rockpile Community Center Ice Arena. The earlier you turn in your order the better, as some selections may become out of stock.
