The Free Tree Program
First there were 600 bald cypress seedlings: slender young deciduous trees that take up just about four cubic feet of space.
Then there were 6,500 Austrian pine: 3-4 year-old evergreens that occupied about 130 cubic feet of storage.
All of these living entities came from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ Marietta Nursery.
Finally, there were 3,000 Colorado blue spruce, Douglas firs and Norway spruce: boxed 1-2 year old conifers that occupied another 130 cubic feet of storage. These had arrived from Bosch Nurseries in Michigan.
