Seedling For Schools Program

Trees are important to wildlife, people and the environment. Seedlings for Schools is open to Pennsylvania pre-K-12 schools free of charge. Through Seedlings for Schools, students plant seedlings at home, on school grounds or in their community and explore the vital role of trees in the environment. Homeschoolers, please combine orders with your home school group/association. Seedlings are grown and shipped from the Pennsylvania Game Commission's Howard Nursery.

Two Ways to Participate

  1. Seedlings for Your Class: The Pennsylvania Game Commission provides a classroom or grade level with enough seedlings for each student to take a seedling home to plant.
  2. Seedlings to Develop Habitats: Primarily for middle and high school students, the Commission provides a variety of seedlings to students interested in planting seedlings on school or community grounds to improve habitat, plant along a stream, develop a tree nursery, or create an environmental area.
