Tree open house set for Jan. 22

The Wadena Soil and Water Conservation District Office will hold a tree open house from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 22 at its office at 4 Alfred St. NE in Wadena.

Stop in and get your tree order done early. Tree species often go fast, and it's first come, first served.

The SWCD can help you decide which trees and shrubs work best for your soil types. Staff will be available for technical assistance with tree planting plans and windbreaks. Ask about the State Cost Share program, which can pay 75 percent of your tree planting costs.

Cash-paying customers will receive a 10 percent discount on their order. Refreshments will be provided.

Contact Anne Oldakowski at the Wadena SWCD, at (218) 631-3195, ext. 3, for more information.
