Seedling Trees and Shrubs Available

Summit County CSU Cooperative Extension and the Colorado Forest Service are making available 60 species of seedling trees and shrubs to local residents.

Trees are available in bare root lots of 50 for $30.50, or small and large potted lots of 30 for $26.28 and $39.20.

To qualify for the program, you must have two acres of land. Seedlings must be used for conservation practices such as reforestation and creating windbreaks, and must not be used in ornamental or landscape planting.

Varieties include aspen, Colorado blue spruce, Engelmann spruce, Douglas fir, limber pine and bristlecone pine.

Order early for the best selection. Trees will be available for pick-up on May 3, 2006.
