Cook Inlet SAF Chapter Now Accepting Orders for Seedlings
For over 40 years, the Cook Inlet SAF Chapter’s Seedling Sale has been the go-to source for homeowners and organizations wanting to purchase seedlings. That two species sold out shortly after the sale opened on the morning of January 22–Colorado Spruce and Siberian Larch–reflects the demand for the high-quality seedlings available for sale. The seedling sale will be open online until mid-May. Please check back periodically as additional inventory will be added for some species later in the sale.
To grow the 15,000-17,000 seedlings that are sold through the seedling sale, for the second consecutive year, Cook Inlet is working with the Confederated Salish & Kootenai Tribal (CSKT) Nursery in Ronan, Montana. The CSKT Nursery has decades of experience growing trees for tribal reforestation projects and has shipped seedlings to Alaska in the past.
To view the seedling availability, visit https://forestry.org/store/seedling-sale.html. This year the Chapter is offering White spruce, Colorado (Blue) spruce, Lodgepole pine, Scotch pine, Siberian larch and Paper birch.
Seedling distribution will be Saturday, May 18, 2024, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the following locations:
- Matsu: Wasilla Sportsman’s Warehouse 1901 E Parks Hwy, Wasilla, AK 99654
- Anchorage Location: TBD
