Military members receive a 20% discount on N.C. Forest Service tree seedling orders through November. Discount available for active, retired and honorable discharged members.
I am very proud of the N.C. Forest Service’s Nursery and Tree Improvement program, which raises tree seedlings from seeds collected from native trees throughout the year.
I wish I had come up with this idea, but this program has been around for nearly 100 years.
It started in 1924 with the goal of providing a reliable, affordable and high-quality supply of tree seedlings for residents interested in restocking and harvesting their forestland.
The Tree Improvement Program area has specifically focused on developing improved selections of key tree species that are of high economic value to forest landowners.
Some of these species include loblolly pine, longleaf pine, shortleaf pine, Eastern white pine and Atlantic white cedar.
This program ensures residents have access to the best native trees and genetics available for use on their land.
Through the month of November, we are offering a 20% discount to military members – active, retired or honorably discharged – in appreciation for their service.
Many members of the military call North Carolina home and are forest landowners.
The discount applies to the first $500 of all new orders, up to a $100 discount.
Current available inventory includes southern yellow pines, native oaks and hardwoods, native understory grasses and Christmas tree species. Orders can be placed by calling 1-888-NCTREES.
You can find a complete list of available species and pricing on the N.C. Forest Service’s website at ncforestservice.gov.
