Trees benefit our landscapes by protecting property from wind, reducing soil erosion, improving wildlife habitat and reducing cooling and heating costs.

Planting Seedling Trees Offers Diverse Benefits That May Include:

  • Protecting property and livestock from wind
  • Reducing soil erosion and improving crop yields
  • Providing food and cover for wildlife
  • Increasing property values
  • Increasing or restoring forest health
  • Reducing water evaporation, preserving winter moisture, and protecting and improving water quality
  • Controlling snow drifts near roads
  • Reducing atmospheric carbon dioxide
  • Reducing heating and cooling costs
  • Protecting livestock from the elements
  • Restoring or enhancing natural beauty
  • Increasing supplies of renewable wood resources

The only requirement to purchase seedlings and other plant materials from the CSFS Nursery is that they are used solely for conservation purposes.
