The West Greeley Conservation District partners with the Colorado State Forest Service to provide conservation seedling trees to local landowners at a nominal cost. We do this to encourage the establishment of conservation tree plantings such as Windbreaks, Living Snow Fences, Erosion Control, Wildlife Habitat, Visual Screens or Noise Barriers. Seedlings are grown at the CSFS Nursery in Fort Collins.
The district accepts orders from November to March and the trees are available for pickup in April. The district also sells supplies at a reasonable cost. Follow the links below for order forms, inventory, planting guides, species guides and more. For questions, call the district office at 970-356-8097 x3.
Last day to buy trees is March 31st, 2020.
Please check our available inventory online at http://csfs.colostate.edu/nursery/inventory.aspx.
