Among the native trees and shrubs included in the SWCD's tree sale are Mexican buckeye and mountain laurel.

The Bandera Soil & Water Conservation District is sponsoring a sale of native tree species for anyone wanting to enhance the beauty of their yard or ranch. Sizes vary, but many are in five-gallon containers.
The native species are more adapted to the region than are many of the imported horticultural varieties and have a much better survivability. The delivery will be made on Saturday, Nov. 22, and orders need to be in by Nov. 14.
Trees that are available are listed as follows: Mexican White Oak/ Monterrey Oak, Live Oak, Lacey Oak, Burr Oak, Chinquapin Oak, Texas Sycamore, Possumhaw, Texas Walnut, Texas Redbud, Mexican Buckeye, Mexican Plum, Cedar Elm, Mountain Laurel, Anacacho Orchid, Skeleton Leaf Goldeneye, Santolina (green or gray), and Dwarf Barbados Cherry. Besides being an attractive addition to the landscape, many of these trees can also be utilized by wildlife. Pricing is $25 each except for the Santolina and Dwarf Cherry which are $10 each.
For information or to order, drop by the office at Mansfield Park or contact Billy Griffin at 830-796-5335 or Denise Griffin at 830-796-5472. You may also email at: banderaswcd@tx.nacdnet.org
