National Forest Sells Plants

Bridger-Teton National Forest will begin selling transplant permits next week from all Ranger Districts around the Forest. Forest Spokesperson Mary Cernicek says the service is one of the multiple uses of the national forest. Cernicek says landscaping with native plants is great for all sorts of reasons.  She says, “It’s better for the environment, it’s better for water consumption, it’s also good for when you are looking for things like fire resistance, and using plants that have been adapted for this landscape is something that’s good for homeowners in general.”  She says the program is a way for the public to utilize the national forest to naturally landscape around the home.  Cernicek says the permits range from $5 – $ 25 each depending on the size and species of plant or tree to be transplanted. All forest product transplant permits are for personal use only and there is a minimum $20 purchase per permit. The permit must be signed and secured on the tree before leaving the digging site and at all times when transporting. Cernicek says only hand tools can be used.  The permits go on sale May first.
