From Janice Mittlekamp at Wegerzyn:
I would love to have a few larger trees included in our upcoming plantings for Adopt a Park. Trees such as Cercis canadensis (redbuds), Ostraya virginiana (American hophornbeam), Nyssa sylvatica (black gum), Quercus shumardi (Oak), Quercus rubra (red oak) and Quercus imbricaria (shingle oak). When I spoke to Beth she indicated that we could not accept plant donations but we could accept monetary donations and apply those towards plants. I looked through a couple of sources and found this information:
Ostraya virginiana # 10 @ Siebenthaler=$89.25 and Greenfield=$69.00.
Nyssa sylvatica #15 @ Greenfield=$89.00.
Cercis canadensis @ Siebenthaler 5’ BF (bush form)=$79.50 and Greenfield #15=$79.00. Quercus shumardi @ Siebenthaler #7=$81.75 and Greenfield #10=$69.00.
Quercus rubra @ Siebenthaler 1 3⁄4” cal. =$134.25 and Greenfield #15 =$84.00.
Quercus imbricaria @ Siebenthaler 1 3⁄4” cal=$134.25 and Greenfield #15
