VA Dept. of Forestry Taking Orders for Tree Seedlings

EVERY OCTOBER, the Virginia Department of Forestry (VDOF) opens its Seedling Store, which offers a variety of seedlings for online purchase to Virginians.

Our seedlings are grown and sold directly from our self-supporting Forestry Centers without replanting, and are bred for Virginia soils and climate.

In addition to our selection of over 40 individual species, we also offer several specialty seedling packs, with species that have been hand-picked for certain qualities (e.g. fall colors pack, pollinator pack). These are great options for diversifying your landscaping.

For landowners with other goals in mind, we offer a variety of pine and spruce species, as well as dozens of hardwood varieties, used to establish timber stands, pulpwood crops, Christmas tree plantations, wildlife habitats, stream bank stabilization, urban forests, biodiversity, and improvement of watersheds.

Whatever your tree-planting goals are, VDOF can help. This year, seedlings can be ordered in quantities as low as five, and can be picked up from a Forestry Center or delivered to you from Feb. 22 until April 27, 2022.
