Order tree seedlings now


Oklahoma

Tree planting time is once again just around the corner in Oklahoma. Pine and hardwood seedlings and seedling packages can be ordered online or by mail from Oklahoma Forestry Services, a division of the Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry. In addition to enhancing wildlife habitats, anyone wanting to plant seedlings for timber production, fuel wood production, windbreaks or shelterbelts should order their seedlings at this time.

December through early March is the ideal time for planting seedlings. OFS can assist landowners in selecting the right species to help meet their objectives and in lining up a contractor to plant the seedlings.

In eastern Oklahoma a few acres of seedlings planted for timber production can be an excellent source of income. After initial planting, a stand of trees need very little attention until first thinning and harvest time. A few acres of idle land, planted now, can grow into cash in as little as ten years and also add value to your property. A one acre pine planting makes an excellent place to hay cattle in the winter. Hardwood species planted for fuel wood production can mean an abundant supply of cost efficient fuel for home heating. Trees planted in strategic locations around a home can also help save money by reducing heating and cooling costs by as much as 40 percent.

In some parts of the state programs like the Environmental Quality Incentives Program and Huber's free seedling program can help with the initial costs of tree planting. Tax incentives associated with tree planting may also apply. Increased crops and forage production also add to the economic reasons for good conservation practices. More is produced on land with good timber management, both environmentally and economically.

Oklahoma Forestry Services provides tree planting and timber management assistance to landowners. Anyone having any questions about ordering seedlings, seedling prices or timber management may contact Oklahoma Forestry Services at 405-522-6158 or visit their website at www.forestry.ok.gov.
