Tree and shrub sale ongoing

ELLSWORTH — The Hancock County Soil and Water Conservation District is holding its annual fundraising tree and shrub sale from now until March 1.

Sale plants have been chosen, as they help provide a source of food or habitat for many wildlife species, including important pollinators and migratory birds. The district is offering these items as bare root seedlings. Bare root seedlings are easy to transport and don’t carry invasive species in soil or pots.

Pick-up, following pandemic guidelines, will be at the district’s new location with the USDA NRCS at 474 Bucksport Road, Ellsworth. Customers will be notified of the pick-up date and will be provided with planting instructions. 

Ten specially selected items may be viewed and purchased online at You may print an order form to mail your payment or call 667-8663 or email [email protected] for printed information.
