If any one species is sold out, the District will refund payment for those seedlings not available. All seedlings must be purchased by placing a prepaid order. Survival rates of bareroot seedlings vary from site to site, from excellent to poor. We strive to provide the most viable seedlings available and all efforts are made to handle seedlings in order to prevent root stress. DCCD will not insure successful plantings of bareroot seedlings, as our suppliers will not insure seedling survival.
