How the Seedling Tree Program Works

These seedling trees and shrubs are selected specially for Colorado's climate and are grown at the Colorado State Forest Service Nursery in Fort Collins, Colorado.    Order forms for the 2018 seedling Tree Program are available now.     

If you live in Douglas County, Colorado, you're in the right place!  Each year in October, .we will send each person on our mailing list an order form.  They will have until the end of March of the following year to order.  The earlier you order, the more likely the plants you want will still be available.  "First Come, First Served"  The date for tree pickup is scheduled for mid April in Castle Rock, Colorado at the Douglas County Fairgrounds.     Look at Trees and Shrubs for species.
