Soon Virginia residents once again will be able take advantage of the state's two tree nurseries and the horticultural wisdom of the Commonwealth's forestry department.

Virginia's Department of Forestry says its online tree seedling store will re-open on Oct. 9. Every year the department offers hardwood and pine bareroot seedlings. The Forestry Department's two tree nurseries grow and sell 24 million tree seedlings each year.

Officials say it's something the agency has done for residents for nearly 95 years.

Those interested can log onto BuyVirginiaTrees.com and order from the more than 40 species available. The online store also includes information to help landowners choose the right tree species.
