Tree, Shrub and Seed Sale

Wood County’s Tree and Shrub sale has been offering landowners the opportunity to purchase trees at minimal cost for over 25 years! We offer a variety of conifers, hardwoods, shrubs. Wildflower and grass seeds are also available to purchase.

“The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago.
The second best time is now.”

The order form becomes available in November and is posted below. Trees can be ordered through mid-January. Tree pick up is located at the Wood County forestry garage at 650 17th Avenue North, Wisconsin Rapids, and typically occurs in late April depending on the weather conditions. All people ordering will receive a notice that will provide exact pickup details for their order prior to the scheduled distribution.

If you are interested in participating in the tree sale, would like your name added to our email or mail lists, or have any questions, please contact the Wood County Land and Water Conservation Department at 715-421-8475 or email lruess@co.wood.wi.us.
