Seedling trees available for spring planting

Posted

The Douglas County Conservation District, in cooperation with the Colorado State Forest Service Nursery, has seedling trees available for sale to residents at a minimal cost.

There is no minimum amount of property required to purchase these trees and shrubs. A wide variety of species are available in various sizes, including bare root trees and shrubs, large tubed deciduous and evergreen trees, and individual potted evergreens and deciduous trees and shrubs. Perennial flowering plants also are available.

The trees and shrubs are to be planted for conservation uses such as windbreaks, shelterbelts, living snow fences, erosion control, wildlife habitat and reforestation. The trees may not be used for ornamental purposes or re-sold.

Interested landowners can learn about the proper tree and shrub selection for their property at a seedling tree workshop Jan. 23 in Franktown.

Tree selection depends on what landowners would like to plant the trees for — windbreak, shelterbelts, living snow fences, erosion control, wildlife habitat and reforestation. At the workshop, landowners also can create their own windbreak design and learning how to plant and care for their trees.

The workshop runs from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Franktown Firehouse, 1958 N. Highway 83, Franktown.

Seedling tree order forms are available at dcconservation.com. Species are available on a first-come, first-served basis. The last day for ordering will be March 28, 2019, to be picked up on April 11, 2019 in Castle Rock.

For order forms and information about the trees, or to RSVP for the workshop, call 303-218-2622 or email DCCDistrict@gmail.com.
