CSU Cooperative Extension
Now is the time to think about planting trees for the spring. If you are a Colorado landowner of two or more acres, you are eligible to participate in the Seedling Tree Program. High quality trees suitable for Colorado growing conditions are offered to those that qualify at a discounted price. Trees are sold in lots of 50 for bare root trees and lots of 30 for regular and large potted trees. These trees must be used for conservation purposes only, such as windbreaks, wildlife habitat, reforestation and erosion control.
The Seedling Tree program in Douglas County is the main fundraiser for the 4-H Youth Council. The money earned sponsors many activities, allows 4-H’ers to attend state and national camps, and provide scholarships to Douglas County youth. Applications for the Seedling Tree Program will become available from the Douglas County Extension Office in late October. Completed order forms are due in March and the trees are delivered to the Douglas County Fairgrounds in early April. Trees do sell out, so get your name on the mailing list for the best choices. To get your name on the initial mailing list please call the 4-H office at (720) 733-6940.
If you have any questions about tree selection, windbreak planning, or general questions about the Seedling Tree program, please call.
