Pre-Ordering for Spring 2021 Begins Nov. 2, 2020

November 2 marks the beginning of our pre-order season, for seedling trees, shrubs and perennials to be distributed in Spring of 2021.

Our cooperating offices are located throughout Colorado and surrounding states, and offer the best route to obtain our plant stock. Identify your nearest participating office by checking the maps below and contact that office directly to place an order for the plants you would like to pick up from them in the spring.

The nursery will also be taking orders directly for those interested in picking up plants directly from our facility in Fort Collins, or for those who wish for plants to be shipped to them via UPS*. To place an order for pick up from the nursery, or for UPS shipment, please complete our order form found here, and return it to the nursery via email to CSFS_Trees@mail.colostate.edu.

As COVID continued to impact our ability to host visitors at the nursery, all pickup of plant material in the Spring of 2021 will be done by appointment only. Once you have submitted an order, we will reserve the plants requested, and then contact you to discuss payment options and to schedule an appointment for pickup. These appointments will be 15 minute windows, beginning mid-March and running through the end of May, and it will be imperative that these appointments are kept, as due to the volume of customers we anticipate serving, rescheduling a missed appointment could mean significant delays in your ability to pick up your plants.

*Some products are not available for UPS shipment. Additional costs for shipping apply to all UPS orders.
