Tree Sales

The Coshocton SWCD holds tree sales from January through March each year. Items include conifer and deciduous tree species in quantities of 5, 25 or 100.  Packets of wildflower seeds are also available.  All stock is state and federally inspected.  Orders are not being taken at this time.  For an idea of what is usually offered, here is last year's order form: 2015 Order Form


May - June
Big Tree Contest
Coshocton SWCD's Big Tree Contest is held annually.  If you think you have the largest tree in Coshocton County, stop by the Coshocton SWCD Office at 724 S. Seventh Street, Coshocton and enter the "Big Tree" Contest.  Entry forms area accepted from May 1 to mid-July.  An award is presented to the owners of the largest tree in the county, regardless of species.  A custom made plaque and recognition at the District's Annual Meeting will be awarded to the owners of the "Big Tree".  Entry Forms may be obtained through the SWCD office or on this website during contest months.

Coshocton County Fair

The 2014 Coshocton County Fair was held September 26-October 2.  Coshocton SWCD's Display was in the Commercial Arts Building right beside Smokey the Bear. For more information go to http://www.coshoctoncountyfair.org







  




Each year
the Coshocton SWCD's Fair Display contains a Mystery Photo.  If you can guess the location of the farm in the photograph your name will be entered into a drawing to win 2 complimentary tickets for the SWCD's Annual Meeting and Banquet.  2014's farm location was the Bill and Caroline Daugherty Farm located on County Road 12 in Millcreek Township.  Congratulations to Kim Lacy for winning the 2014 drawing!
