Order Kansas Forest Service conservation trees now
The Kansas Forest Service offers low-cost tree and shrub seedlings for use in conservation plantings. Plants are 1 to 2 years old and sizes vary from 5 to 18 inches, depending on species. Orders are accepted from now through the first full week in May each year, but order early to insure getting the items you want. Orders are shipped from the second week of March through May 5.
Approved uses for these plants include windbreaks, wood lots, riparian plantings, wildlife habitat and Christmas trees. They may not be used for landscape (ornamental) plantings or grown for resale.
All items are sold in units. Each single species unit consists of 25 plants. For example, a unit of Eastern red cedar has 25 trees per unit. Though a single species unit is most commonly purchased, four special bundles are also available including a songbird bundle, quail bundle, pheasant bundle and wildlife mast bundle. For details and an order form, go to http://www.kansasforests.org/conservation/index.shtml.
Order forms are also available from local K-State Research and Extension offices.
