Buying Seedling Trees
Customers may pre-order plants through a Nursery cooperating agency as early as Nov. 1.
For a full list of cooperating agencies, please check the information below or contact our office. Alternately, customers may order directly from the Nursery beginning Jan. 1 for shipping via UPS in the spring. UPS orders must be for a minimum of 120 total plants, and an additional shipping charge is applied.
However, to take advantage of the best selection of species, sizes and available quantities, customers are strongly encouraged to take advantage of the pre-ordering options through a cooperating agency. This will allow us to focus on providing you with a greater volume of plants of greater quality.
Beginning in late spring and running through the planting season, customers may order items (subject to availability) direct from the Nursery, with pick up in Fort Collins at our facility.
The Nursery will NOT accept new orders for Spring 2023.
The Colorado State Forest Service (CSFS) Seedling Tree Nursery is taking critical steps to improve facilities, expand staffing and increase production of quality seedlings. These improvements are essential as the Nursery has experienced significant staff shortages and failing infrastructure, and this focus on updates will unfortunately require short-term reductions in production at the facility. All existing orders and contracts for Spring 2023 will be fulfilled, but no new orders will be accepted at this time.
Thank you for your patience and support as we take these crucial steps to better meet the tree needs of landowners and partners across the West. Contact Scott Godwin with any comments or concerns or read our Frequently Asked Questions.
