NDF Elko Tree Sales

Dear Elko Plant Sale Customers:

The Nevada Division of Forestry and the Silver Sage FFA are pleased to once again hold the Elko Spring Plant Sale. This sale represents a continuing collaboration between NDF and the local FFA chapter at Spring Creek High School. We appreciate how previous customers (you) have shared this information with your neighbors, family and friends and encourage you to do so with this sale.

Please read closely the attached Elko Tree Sale Leaflet Spring 2021 for instructions on ordering and plant pick-up. This sale requires pre-payment because the exact amount of nursery stock is pulled from NDF’s Washoe State Nursery and transported to Elko a week prior to the sale. NDF and FFA can only provide correct and timely fulfillment of orders when they are submitted in the manner specified in this flyer. Note that the pick dates and times have changed to mid-week. If you cannot make those days and times, please find someone who can make the pick-up for you.

I have provided you with order forms in both Excel and Adobe PDF formats (see attached: Revised Order Form Elko Spring 2021). If you have a spreadsheet program on your computer, you can use the Excel format form to automatically calculate the amount due. Or, simply print out the PDF form and manually indicate both your quantities by species and the amount due. Pay particular note to those species which have quantities limited to 50. Those are first come, first served – so get your order in as soon as possible. We will notify you if your order has to be modified due to lack of stock.

The attached Plant-Characteristics-Northern Nevada.pdf can provide you with information on selecting a species suitable to your planting site. NDF has some of these trees and shrubs planted in the Jordan Arboretum at the NDF Northern Region headquarters. You are welcome to come and view them as mature plants (up to 35 years old individuals). Please call the office number below to make an appointment for viewing during business hours, so that we can have someone to accompany you. You can also call this NDF number if you need further information on any of the plants listed.

Thanks again and we look forward to successfully filling your order!
