SOUTHEAST COLO. – January 8, 2020 – The Colorado State Forest Service is selling affordable seedling trees, grown by its Seedling Tree Nursery, to residents of the state in support of the Trees for Conservation program. The seedling season is now underway, and residents may purchase a multitude of species in preparation for spring plantings.
With winter weather underway and spring months approaching, now is the perfect time for residents to purchase new seedlings to improve forest health, offer budding flowers for pollinators and increase the overall growth of the forest. The CSFS is offering many different species, from large evergreens, such as Colorado blue spruce and Douglas fir, to hardy bare-root shrubs, such as caragana. Not only can planting seedlings improve the health of Colorado’s forests, but it can also offer increased property values, wind and snow protection for homes, and even energy savings.
