The Colorado State Forest Service tree program enables farmers, ranchers and rural landowners to buy seedling trees at a nominal cost.

Seedlings grow a greenhouse at the Colorado State Forest Service Seedling Tree Nursery, Fort Collins.

The program is designed to encourage landowners to plant new forests, promote reforestation, establish effective windbreaks that reduce erosion, and enhance wildlife habitat. Trees sold through the program are for conservation purposes.

Order forms are available in mid-November with tree delivery during the first part of May. Tree ordering and delivery is done through local conservation district or extension offices.

If your property is in Arapahoe, Douglas, Elbert or Lincoln county and you would like to be placed on the mailing list, contact your local conservation district or county extension office listed below to be placed on a mailing list for tree order forms and additional information.
