The Eaton Conservation District runs a spring tree and shrub program. This event offers evergreen, hardwood, fruit trees, and shrub seedlings for sale at reduced costs.
The trees and shrubs are suited to a wide variety of soil conditions and uses, such as erosion control, wildlife habitat, windbreaks and reforestation. Several varieties are available including pines, spruces, maples, oaks, dogwood, paw paw, and more.
