TREE SELECTION GUIDE

A good root system must be developed before trees & shrubs reach their indicated growth rates. Most trees & shrubs grow slowly for 1-3 years after planting or transplanting and more rapidly after their root system becomes developed. Generally, trees & shrubs with Rapid to Moderate growth rates reach 5-6 feet tall in 7-9 years. Those with Moderate to Slow growth rates reach 5-6 feet tall in 9-11 years. Soils, weather, animal or other damage, weed and grass competition, and general care will also affect growth rates.

A LITTLE ABOUT US…

The Wayne Conservation District (CD) is a local agency of state government assisting landowners and residents with the conservation and management of our county’s natural resources. The Wayne CD was formed in 1969 to assist the USDA with organization and distribution of the county soil survey. Since, the CD has expanded to address conservation issues relating to soil, water, air, plants and wildlife, in rural, suburban and, urban Wayne County.

Some of the services and activities of the CD include:

Forester/Wildlife Biologist: To assist with tree planting recommendations; tree problems, care & maintenance; woodlot assessments & management plans; wildlife habitat establishment & improvement recommendations; and wetland enhancement assistance. The Forester/Wildlife Biologist, Andy Henriksen, covers multiple counties, and is best reached at the Washtenaw CD office, (734) 761-6721x5.

Soils Information: The soil maps and soil descriptions for much of the land in Wayne County are again available. This valuable reference was reprinted in January 2003, and is available for purchase at the Conservation District office. The soil survey can help you with a variety of land use decisions, such as tree planting, construction, crop production, septic field suitability, and much more. The maps are available in both book and CD format.

The Wayne CD also reviews and comments on over 65 public notices annually, addressing river, lake, stream, and wetland related activities. The CD also hosts public workshops on conservation issues, assists schools with environmental education, and participates in several natural resource related committees and councils.

A complete outline of the Wayne CD’s activities, goals, and objectives, is available in the Wayne Conservation District Strategic Plan available online at www.waynecd.org.

I have the order form in front of me for the Arena Conservation District Tree Sale but thought I'd ask to see if any of you have ordered from this organization before. The prices are very good and I would like to order some trees and shrubs but don't want to spend the money if the plant material is inferior. I found out too late about the Arbor Day Foundation stuff so thought I'd ask before I order on this one.

Thanks for any opinions.

Thanks Dori,

I wonder if red oak trees would do good in my woods. I'd like to repopulate them with something besides the ash trees that are in there. My woods are in lowland and are real wet in the spring. Is red oak an OK choice or what would you recommend?

Brenda
