Seedling Tree Program

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

  • Living snow fences

  • Windbreaks

  • Wildlife habitat

  • Pollinator habitat

  • Visual screens

  • Noise barriers

  • Erosion control

  • Reforestation

  • And other conservation purposes

Seedling trees arrive in early May - just in time for spring planting. Perennials are generally ready the week before Memorial Day.

 

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. In the event that a desired species is sold out, please have a substitution in mind.
