Fall 2023 Tree and Plant Sale

CLICK HERE FOR TO VIEW  Tree-Plant Order Form for Fall 2023

The Lake Erie Islands Conservancy (LEIC) is now taking orders for native trees and plants for the islands. We’re using Riverside Native Trees and Quail Ridge Specimen Trees, and some home-grown natives for the sale. Also, Riverside Native Perennials still has the LEIC code* active for us. Buying and planting native trees and shrubs in the Fall is also a great way to provide quality habitat for the birds, butterflies, moths, and other wildlife on the islands. We’re promoting the planting of native trees and shrubs because our wildlife are adapted to feeding on these plants and using them for shelter. By planting native species, you’re making your land more attractive to birds, bees, butterflies, moths, and a host of other desirable species. This fundraiser will be used to support the LEIC land preservation and restoration programs!

Trees: Native trees and shrubs for sale in 3-gallon containers. The varieties available are American Basswood, American Sycamore, Black Willow, Bur Oak, Common Hackberry, Sandbar Willow, Silver Maple, Sugar Maple, Swamp White Oak, Wild Black Cherry. Shrubs offered are Buttonbush, Common Elderberry, Hoptree, Ninebark, Pasture Rose, Prairie Rose, Rough-leaved Dogwood, Silky Dogwood, Smooth Rose, Swamp Rose Mallow. Trees for sale in 20-gallon containers: Bur Oak, Chinkapin Oak, Sugar Maple, Swamp White Oak, and Sycamore. All these trees and shrubs are native to the islands and will thrive in this environment.

Plants: LEIC is also selling a few varieties of native perennial plants and flowers homegrown by Chad Machinski from Middle Bass seed including Hairy Beardtongue (Penstemon hirsutus), Nodding Wild Onion (Allium cernuum), Short’s Aster (Symphiotrichum shortii), and Wild Columbine (Aquilegia canadense).
