DELTA COUNTY — There’s another chance to take part in the Delta Conservation District’s Tree Sale.
Conservation District Director Rory Mattson talked with the Radio Results Network. He says they will have a special sale Thursday afternoon.
“We will sell everything that we’ve got in that barn,” Mattson told RRN News. “We still have quite a few fruit trees left. We have some plums, we have some pears, we have some cherries. We have quite a few apple trees. They’re about three-quarters of an inch to an inch (wide). They’re easily about eight-to-ten feet high. They’re excellent trees and we want to see them in the ground.”
Mattson says they had leftovers from last week’s tree sale, and the nursey had extras, so they were shipped to Escanaba as well with hopes that they would be sold instead of going to waste.
“We will lower our prices, again, a little more,” he said. “If you get close to ordering large quantities, when you get to that quantity, you get a bit of a reduced price. So, we ordered a bit more than we actually needed. But the nursery sent more trees than we actually ordered, too.”
They will be at the UP State Fairgrounds Barn Number Ten from 2 until 6 Thursday afternoon.
Mattson says they have about 100 apple trees left, along with other varieties.
