About Our Auction
Over 5000 trees and shrubs consisting of 93 species are available for sale to raise money for United Way of Posey County. All trees are compatible with the area. A majority of trees are native species, but does include some non-native, non-invasive species.
Trees range 1 foot to 6 feet in height, and are grown in Southern Indiana soil using a patented method that promotes the growth of a well-developed root structure, with no girdling or tangled roots, common with trees grown in tradition containers. Trees are provided in a 20 or 24 inch tall, 6 or 8 inch diameter container that has no bottom, weighing between 30 and 50 pounds. The trees are easy to plant in a 12-inch diameter hole of the proper depth.
These trees will not generally require staking but taller ones may. Trees, when planted and then properly cared for, will overtake a larger more expensive tree planted at the same time within 3 to 4 years.
Planting and tree care instructions will be provided.
The trees cost $10 to $20 a piece, depending on species, height, and overall condition. The maximum price per tree is listed on auction site. Trees are guaranteed for one year if planted and cared for properly. A portion of the revenue will be donated to the 2020 United Way of Posey County Fund Drive.
Trees can be picked up Friday, Saturday, or Sunday or by appointment at 7160 Upton Road in Mt. Vernon, Indiana. Payment can be by cash or check. Call Tom Guggenheim at 812-781-8113 with any questions.
