Lincoln Oakes Nursery Tree Sale

Posted:

Whether you are in the market for one or hundreds of seedlings--Lincoln Oakes Nursery has a tree for you.

This is only the second time in history that the 50 plus year old nursery has opened their inventory up to the public.
Manager Bill El hard says the nursery grows between 1.5 and 2 million trees each year.
He says that's one of the lowest numbers on record.
He says just 10 years ago the nursery was growing roughly 4 million trees.

(Bill Elhard / Lincoln Oakes Manager) "Our tree sales have dropped so much we are kinda at the point that we can't sustain ourselves. Instead of throwing all this stuff away we are opening it up the public. I think it's perfect for the people who have 1 to 10 acre lots. Our local soil conservation district like to deal with people who have 40 acres or more, so I guess we are adjusting our business to stay in business."

The nearly 100-thousand trees you see growing here won't just stay in North Dakota. 
This nursery supplies trees to the soil conservation districts in North Dakota, Nebraska, Minnesota, South Dakota and Montana.

(Bill Elhard / Lincoln Oakes Manager)"Common lilac is number one. Chokecherry, plum, buffalo berry those are probably some of the bigger ones."

The sale starts this Saturday. 
You can also order your trees online at Lincoln Oakes dot com.
