The N.C. Forest Service is offering a 20% discount on tree seedling orders placed by active or retired military personnel in November. The discount applies to the first $500 of new orders, up to a $100 discount.

“In honor of our active military personnel and veterans, we want to extend an incentive to them to regrow their forests after the timber has been cut, or to start a new forest on fallow land,” said N.C. Agricultural Commissioner Steve Troxler.

“We have a strong partnership with the military through the Sentinel Landscapes Program,” which protects and develops agricultural and forestland around military bases in the state. Protecting agricultural and forestlands provides benefits to both the military and agriculture, which are North Carolina’s two largest industries.”

To qualify for the discount, proof of military service is required. This includes a valid ID, Department of Defense Form 214/215 or National Guard Bureau Form 22/22A. Standard shipping rates apply.

Tree seedlings may be ordered by calling 1-888-NCTREES or by going to www.buynctrees.com. Available tree species are also listed at www.buynctrees.com.
