Baton Rouge Green’s Spring Online Plant Sale is underway offering all tree enthusiasts the opportunity to order exactly what they want to fill that empty spot in the yard with the perfect plant, according to a news release.

Live oaks, crape myrtles, magnolias, cypresses, silver bells, dogwoods, redbuds and fruit trees are just some of the types of trees Baton Rouge green thumbs can plant in the area climate.

Orders can be placed at by April 16th. Orders may be picked up on April 19th from the LSU Burden Center, 4560 Essen Lane.

The non-profit group Baton Rouge Green reminds residents that trees offer incredible value to homes and businesses and are critically important to the quality of life in Louisiana. Trees increase property values, reduce cooling costs, help shade concrete and cool neighborhoods, reduce storm water runoff, resulting in less flooding and erosion, allow homeowners to grow their own fruit and provide homes for birds and other wildlife.
