Tree Sales

The 2024 Knox SWCD Tree Sale is wrapping up!

The window for accepting tree orders for this year’s sale has ended, HOWEVER, we still do have some limited supply of certain tree species. Please call the office (740-393-6724) to get up-to-date information on what we still have and to place an order. If you have already purchased trees, they will be arriving to our office this week! Our staff will be bundling orders and delivering them likely end of next week (April 11th and 12th). Thanks for your support and happy planting!  


Some terrific tree facts!
  • On average, one tree produces nearly 260 pounds of oxygen each year.
  • Prior to settlement, Ohio is estimated to have been 95% forested.
  • Currently Ohio’s forest land area totals 8.0 million acres and occupies 30 percent of the State’s total area.
  • Oak tree species support some 934 caterpillar (butterfly and moth) species nation-wide and about 477 species in Ohio.
  • A tree can absorb as much as 48 pounds of carbon dioxide each year and can sequester 1 ton of carbon dioxide by the time it reaches 40 years old.
  • It is estimated that United States forests absorb about 10% of the country’s CO2 emissions each year.
  • Trees improve water quality by slowing and filtering rainwater and protecting aquifers and watersheds.
  • Strategically planting trees and shrubs can save you up to 25 percent on your energy bills. Not only do they provide shade in the summer, but serve as a windbreak in the winter.
  • Trees are the longest living organisms on Earth, and never die of old age.
  • Rent one of our dibble bars or pull-behind tree planters to help plant your new seedlings!
    Protect and stabilize streambanks with riparian plantings. They filter runoff before it enters the waterway and lower water temperatures, creating more suitable wildlife habitat.
