For nearly 100 years, the Virginia Department of Forestry has offered hardwood and pine bareroot seedlings to state residents.

The department's two tree nurseries grow and sell 24 million tree seedlings each year, but the operation shuts down for the season on April 25. The online store, which will reopen in October, offers more than 40 species. Information to assist landowners in choosing the right species is also available online.
