The Middle Park Conservation District is once again offering tree seedlings for sale to landowners wishing to conserve their properties. Seedlings are grown at the Colorado State Forest Service Nursery in Fort Collins and can be purchased in bulk for really low prices. Seedlings come in packages of 4, 25, 30, or 50 trees and range in size from 5 inches to 14 inches tall. You can choose from more than 60 different varieties. Tree seedlings can be utilized for a variety of conservation projects. They can help stabilize soil on barren ground or steep slopes, reestablish logged forests, or grow up to be living windbreaks for livestock or households.
Tree seedlings will be available for purchase through the Middle Park Conservation District until next spring; however, some species in particular sell out quickly. All trees will be delivered in May 2014.
The Colorado State Forest Service has also removed its minimum acreage requirement, so landowners of properties all shapes and sizes are welcome. Contact the Middle Park Conservation District at 970-724-3456 or firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also visit www.middleparkcd.com.
