Got trees? Ruffner Mountain does.
One of Birmingham’s most beloved Nature Preserves is selling native trees at their nature center. All proceeds from the sale of these trees benefit the 1040 acres nature preserve that is larger than New York’s Central Park. The average cost is about $20.
Don’t know what kind of tree to choose? Ruffner Mountain has developed a cute, funny and useful 4 question quiz that can help you identify which tree will best fit your backyard ecosystem. Take the quiz – HERE.
Here is the list of the kinds of trees they have on hand (make sure to call the ahead first about availability – 833-8264)
Long Leaf Pine
Southern Red Oak
