Due to the government shut-down the Neshoba County Soil and Water Conservation District office was closed. It is now reopened and has extended the deadline to order trees until Oct. 30.

You can come by the office to place your order from 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday or call 601-656-8783 Ext. 3 and we will fax, e-mail or mail you an order form to you, officials said.

The office is located at 511 East Lawn Drive in the USDA building. We are asking that you pay for the trees when placing your order.

The trees are bare root trees and will arrive in February 2014. By ordering bulk wholesale we can pass the savings on to you. Proceeds from tree sales will help support educational programs throughout the year.

You can drop by the office and pick up a list of trees that we will be selling this year or if there is a particular tree that you are wanting, that is not on the list, we can try to order it.

If you have any questions, call 601-656-8783 Ext 3.
