Seedling Tree Program

From November to early April, the SCCD offers low-cost seedling trees and shrubs to SHERIDAN COUNTY residents for:

  • Living snow fences

  • Windbreaks

  • Wildlife habitat

  • Visual screens

  • Noise barriers

  • Erosion control

  • Reforestation

  • And other conservation purposes

Seedlings 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. 

IMPORTANT: Nursery inventory fluctuates daily and we do our best to update species regularly. If a species you had in mind is listed as sold out, you can double check with the office on availability before placing your order. In the event that a desired species is sold out, please have a substitution in mind.

Seedling Tree Program Items

Bareroot seedlings are bundled in groups of 25 and do not have soil surrounding the roots. The sooner you can plant bareroot seedlings the better. Because their roots are not protected by soil, their viability can decrease over time.

Large tube seedlings come in groups of 30 and are individually packaged in a 7x2" tube. While all seedlings should be planted as soon as possible, large tube seedlings are in soil and can be watered if needed.

Weed barrier fabric is  is sold as a 6 x 300' roll. The fabric prevents weeds from overtaking your planting while also allowing water, air, and nutrients to pass through.

When you pick up your seedlings, the SCCD will provide you with a small bag of complimentary root dip. The dip is meant to promote new root development on new plantings.
