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 1, 10, 25, 30, or 50 trees and range in size from 5 inches to 14 inches tall.

There is no minimum acreage size, so landowners of all sizes can purchase seedlings. There are also some new variety packs, tall potted trees, and perennials available for sale this year that haven't been offered in the past.

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. Thus, it is best to ORDER SOONER RATHER THAN LATER.

All trees will be delivered to Grand and Summit County in May 2015.
