Best time to select seedling trees is now

By Press Release


It's almost Christmas and this is the best time to order seedling trees! Our seedlings come in a variety of shapes and sizes, including deciduous trees, shrubs and conifers, and you can purchase our seedlings as either bare root or potted. They are great for creating windbreaks, visual screens, noise barriers, reforestation, wildlife habitat and erosion control.

The Tri River Extension is offering hybrid cottonwood, Manchurian apricot, red-osier dogwood, aspen, hackberry, bur oak, peachleaf willow, and narrowleaf cottonwood, just to name a few of our deciduous species. Shrubs, such as caragana, lilac, native plum, Gambel oak, sand cherry and buffaloberry are also available. And have we have conifers! You can purchase Austrian pine, Colorado blue spruce, Douglas fir, bristlecone pine, Englemann spruce, and eastern redcedar.

Trees can be purchased in lots of 30 or 50 trees of the same species, and prices range from just over a dollar per tree for our most economical species, to roughly $2 per tree for conifers. Extra large potted trees can be ordered in lots of four per species as well. You can order now through early April, and your trees will arrive in mid-May.

For an order form or more information, stop by or call your local Extension Office.

The Delta County Extension office can be reached at 874-2195. Full-color brochures of seedling tree species we sell are also available at the Extension Offices. To have an order form mailed to you, please call any of these numbers at any time and leave your name and mailing address.
