Cook Inlet Chapter SAF's 2019 tree seedling sale is now underway.
Seedlings purchased will be available for pickup on Saturday, May 18, 2019, at locations in Anchorage and Wasilla. Kenai Peninsula purchasers will be contacted with details for a pickup location on the Peninsula a few days after the main seedling distribution.
New this year our seedlings will be 100% Alaska Grown!
During our transition from using out of state nurseries to local Alaska growers some of our seedlings such as white spruce will not be available in May. Growing tree seedlings takes approximately 18 months from the time of sewing, overwintering, and a second growing season to reach the size and quality required for our sale. White spruce will not be available in May but will be distributed in August after their second growing season in time for late summer planting.
Be sure to provide a valid and legible phone number, email address and pickup location selection on your seedling order form. All seedlings are offered on a first come first serve basis, if for some reason we are unable to fill your order you will be contacted and a few options will be presented to fill your order.

Email reminders will be provided to all Anchorage, Mat-Su and Kenai Peninsula purchasers prior to seedling pick-up with any additional details needed to ensure a seamless seedling distribution.
