SEEDLING TREE PROGRAM

Every winter, the Conservation District offers low-cost seedling trees and shrubs for:

 

Seedlings usually arrive in early May–just in time for spring planting. The SCCD/NRCS can provide assistance when considering local soil types, tree species, windbreak design, and site preparation for your planting.

The online store and order forms are generally ready in early November. Orders will be accepted through the early part of April. 

 

Please call the SCCD (307) 672-5820 ext. 3 for more information. 

IMPORTANT: Nursery inventory fluctuates daily and the District will do their best to update species availability on a daily basis. If a species you had in mind is listed as sold out or not listed at all, you may double check with the office on availability before placing your order. Otherwise, in the event that a desired species sells out, please have a substitution in mind.

Fact Sheet on Pine Wilt Disease

BARE ROOT VS. LARGE TUBE

Bare root seedlings are bundled in groups of 25 and as the name indicates, do not have soil surrounding the roots. The sooner you can plant bare root seedlings, the better. Because their roots are not protected by soil, their viability can decrease over time.   

Large tube seedlings are boxed in groups of 30 and come individually packaged in a 7" x 2" tube. While all seedlings should be planted as soon as possible, large tube seedlings are in soil and can be watered if needed, allowing for a longer window of time between pick-up and planting.

Visit Colorado State Forest Service Nursery's Planting Guide for more information on seedling storage, care and planting.
