The Colorado State Forest Service and the San Juan Conservation District are now accepting applications on a first-come, first-served basis for more than 40 varieties of low-cost seedling trees and shrubs grown at CSFS’s Fort Collins nursery. Seedlings ordered now will be distributed statewide in the spring.
Landowners who are interested in conservation goals such as creating natural windbreaks, improving wildlife habitat or reforesting properties impacted by wildfire or floods are eligible to purchase the low-cost seedlings. Colorado-grown species are adaptable, hardy and ideal for a variety of conservation uses.
