Seedling Trees for Colorado

If you are interested in participating in the 2018 program, you can email us and we can email you an order form in October 2017 for the 2018 program.  Trees are available on a first come, first served basis.  Please call the office at 303-218-2622 or email us with any questions.  Please see below to read more about the specifics of the seedling tree program.  These trees and shrubs are specially selected to do well in Colorado's climate.

About our Seedling Tree Program

The seedling tree program enables farmers, ranchers, and rural landowners to obtain seedling trees and shrubs at a nominal cost.  The program's aim is to encourage landowners to successfully establish conservation tree plantings. There is no longer a minimum parcel size to purchase seedlings. The Douglas County Conservation District sells to landowners in Douglas County, Western Elbert County and Northern El Paso County.  We are not able to ship any of these trees.

Each season from November to March, we provide an opportunity for landowners to purchase seedling trees and shrubs for sale through the Colorado State Forest Service Nursery.

The species we offer all do well in Colorado.  Many sell fast, so early ordering is important to ensure you'll get exactly the trees and shrubs you want.  

Trees order forms are emailed to landowners on our list in October 2017.  Seedling tree orders are then taken up until the end of March 2018.  Distribution (pick up) of the trees will be in mid-April 2018 in Castle Rock, CO for all pre-ordered plants.   If you are interested in the program for 2018, or if you have any question, please call us at 303-218-2622 or email us.
