The Seedling Tree Program is under way once again in Summit County to provide property owners with seedling trees to create wildlife habitat, promote growth on bare slopes and to prevent erosion.
To apply for seedling trees, property owners must have at least one acre of land, and they must not use the nursery stock in ornamental or landscaping plantings.
No plants purchased from this program may be resold as a living plant.
Trees are available on a first-come, first-served basis, and the nursery does run out of certain species.
For information and application form to purchase seedling trees, contact Summit County Extension Office at (970) 668-4140 or visit www.coopext.colostate.edu/summit
