Permaplot® is our selected collection of native trees and shrubs. It provides year-round perennial browse that mimics deer’s preferred diet. It provides quality food for a variety of wildlife through all four seasons. One species included in the Permaplot collection is the ‘Bucks Unlimited Oak’. This is a selection of the native swamp white oak (Quercus bicolor). It yields twice the mast production of other oaks. Its acorn is like a magnet for deer, waterfowl and upland game birds.
Each Permaplot has a balance of essential soft and hard mast native species. It is adaptable to any size plot of an acre or more.
The balance of species also supports a healthy soil. One with a diverse and appropriate hierarchy of abundant mycorrhizae and microorganisms. Healthy soils support a proper balance of insects, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals.
Your cost for each Forrest Keeling Permaplot is $625.00 for orders picked up at our Elsberry location. Each Permaplot includes plant materials for one acre plus fertilizer and tree guards. Your order will be correct and the trees will be moist and ready for planting. Before pick up or shipping, each plant receives one-year’s slow-release fertilizer.
Your Permaplot is a sustainable, one-time planting that makes your land a ‘nature’s keeper’. Unlike an annual food plot, there’s no annual planting expense. Permaplot® and you… natural partners supporting wildlife, one tree at a time.
