A Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been issued for areas west of Omaha until 11 p.m.; however, the metro area will likely have thunderstorms on and off throughout the overnight.
The Lower Platte NRD is participating with other NRDs in a program to provide seedling trees and shrubs in bulk.
The minimum order is 100 and, since trees and shrubs are sold in bundles of 25, each species desired must be requested in increments of 25.
The Cassgram reports all trees and shrubs are 75 cents each, or $80.25 per hundred, including tax.
The Lower Platte South NRD has 40,000 trees and shrubs available. More information and the species available (listed on the “Tree Request Form”) can be viewed at http://www.lpsnrd.org/.
