The Conservation District of Nassau County has announced that Long Island residents have placed orders for 10,080 native tree and shrub seedlings in its first-ever plant and shrub sale. The sale was prompted by the destruction of area trees and shrubs caused by Superstorm Sandy. Orders will be available for pickup on April 19 between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. and on April 20 between the hours of 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the conservation district’s offices located at 5 Old Jericho Turnpike in Jericho (across from the former Maine Maid Inn). On the day of the pickup, Cornell Cooperative Extension of Nassau County will be on hand to explain proper plant management. The district and the Long Island Native Plant Initiative (LINPI) will have information booths to educate residents on their respective programs.
