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

Trees for Conservation Program Update

New for the 2019 seedling season, the Woodland Park, Cañon City and La Veta programs have been combined. This merge brings Custer, El Paso, Fremont, Huerfano, Las Animas, Park and Teller counties under one program.

Merging our programs will not change distribution locations.

We will still have a distribution location at our Cañon City Field Office, La Veta Field Office, Trinidad, Westcliffe and Woodland Park Field Office.

Distribution dates are tentatively set for the last weekend in April. Customers will be informed of distribution dates and locations once they have been set via email.

It is important to indicate on your order form your preferred pick-up location.

Please place your order sooner rather than later if you desire a specific species or container size. As we move forward into the spring, favorable species tend to sell out.

Flower Species Offered

Find us on Facebook for up-to-date information on the availability of seedling species and special offers.

Tree PlantingPlease note that our seedling tree order form is only intended for people living in the Woodland Park, Cañon City or La Veta areas (comprising Custer, El Paso, Fremont, Huerfano, Las Animas Park and Teller counties).

If you live outside of the area, please consult the CSFS Nursery Seedling Cooperators page.

Assistance with seedling selection and site planning is available directly from CSFS personnel.

Remember, planting trees and shrubs in the Pikes Peak region takes special care.
