2019 Annual Tree and Shrub Sale
Pre-ordering for the 2019 Tree and Shrub Sale is closed. The District will be holding a one-day direct sale on March 16, 2019. Time is 09:00 AM to 1:00 PM. Address: 2325 River Rd. USDA Service Center, The Dalles. Quantifites available will be limited and sold on a first come-first served basis.

Due to the heavy snowfall, conifers and pines won't be available until the end of March or the 1st week in April.

Trees and shrubs are specifically chosen for the arid climate of Wasco County and surrounding areas in the Columbia Gorge. Native and naturalized, most are particularly suited for riparian plantings. Shrubs are mostly fruit bearing for wildlife plantings. Plants are bareroot, however, Ponderosa Pine and Douglas fir can be plugs (though we won't don't often know until we complete our nursery order) and Willows and Cottonwoods are cuttings.

Wasco County Watersheds have a new website!
Wasco County Watersheds have flown the nest and now have their own dedicated site. You can now find updated information at:


Other than the main Watershed Council page listing current meeting dates, dedicated Council pages will no longer be updated on this site and will eventually be removed. However, watershed projects will continue to be monitored and updated as all projects are District supported and relevant to both District and Watershed Council missions.
