After each resident has picked up their plant material, they are directed to the TCA & MG tent as they exit the distribution site. Your focus is on providing proper planting information, as well as other maintenance (staking, mulch, rodent protection, etc.) to guarantee successful planting in a heavy, clay soil. Plant material can be previewed at www.plymouthmn.gov/treesale
