Planting the Right Trees to Meet Your Needs

Trees are a vital part of our community and wildlife in Paulding County. Trees can provide you with shade, a serene atmosphere, provide natural cover for vital wildlife, as well as increase your property value. According to the USDA Forest Service, “Healthy, mature trees add an average of 10 percent to a property’s value.” Planting trees are a true investment in not only our environment, but your property for the future. The Paulding Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) is holding their Annual Tree Seedling Event now through March 1, 2015. This year the event will offer over 20 different varieties of trees to meet your needs. The Paulding SWCD is able to work one on one with landowners to help determine the trees that best fit for your own unique soil types based on the location of the property.  We invite you to visit the Paulding SWCD office to acquire more information about the many different trees available and to determine what trees can meet your needs. As an Ohioan, show your true spirit for the Ohio State Buckeyes by capitalizing in our feature tree, “The Ohio Buckeye.”  If you would like an order form please stop into the Paulding SWCD office located in the Extension Building at the fairgrounds, contact us at 419-399-4771 or visit our website at or “Like Us” on Facebook at Paulding Soil and Water Conservation District. We look forward to working with you to help with your tree planting needs.
