Conservation district begins tree sale

The St. Joseph County Conservation District is scheduled to begin its inaugural Christmas tree sale today.
The agency’s first-time event, which organizers said will serve as a fundraiser, begins at 9 a.m. today at the conservation district office. It is located on the south side of East Main Street, across from Yoder’s Country market.
Conservation district intern Hunter Stanke said the assortment of locally grown trees includes Frasier fir, Colorado blue spruce and scotch pine. Trees range in height from five to 12 feet.
Also, the agency will have for sale 24-inch Frasier fir wreaths.
Starting price for the trees is $35. Proceeds will help support conservation-related tasks, including wildlife-habitat improvement, river cleanup events and water-quality monitoring, Stanke said.
