Mercer County Conservation District has a Whitfield tree setter available for the fall planting season.
The setter plants one row of tree seedlings at a time. The setter is hauled on a specially designed trailer for easy transport and unloading.
It takes at least a 35 horse power tractor with a three-point hitch capable of lifting 1,450 pounds. In addition, the setter is equipped with a 32-inch-wide sod scalper.
The rental charge is $50 per day plus a $25 delivery/pickup fee to farms in Mercer County. Call the Mercer County Conservation District office for more information or scheduling at (859) 734-6889.
