The Portage Soil & Water Conservation District not only listened to the local beekeepers when selecting trees for their 2014 Tree Sales, they went a step further and asked Kim Flottum for his expert opinion. You can read Kim's suggestions and order trees form their website http://portageswcd.org by looking at the Winter Newsletter and the Tree Order Form. The deadline for ordering trees is April 4, 2014.
