2024 Tree Store Now Open Online!

Updated: Feb 6

As of February 6, 2024, the online store is now open for orders.


Why do we sell trees?


The Conservation District has been selling bareroot trees since the 1940's. Planting trees and other vegetation can have huge effects on landscaping and conservation efforts.


  1. The most significant component of soil conservation is reducing soil erosion from wind and water.  Trees have played a major role in reducing both kinds of erosion by keeping soil where it is.

  2. Water quality has also benefitted greatly from reduced runoff, improved water infiltration, and nutrient uptake from tree plantings.

  3. Home and farmsteads have seen reduced heating and cooling costs from windbreaks plantings and summer shading.

  4. Living snow fence reduces the snow removal needs.

  5. Wildlife has also benefitted from tree plantings providing food and cover to many species including deer, pheasants, turkeys, ducks, small mammals, song birds, butterflies, bees and many more.


These reasons, along with others, are why the tree program continues today.



Annual reminders:

  1. Trees are sold in bundles of approximately 25.

  2. Product pickup will be near the end of April 2024.

  3. Tree tubes and stakes will be shipped to you directly from our supplier.

  4. If you don't see a product you were wishing to purchase, let us know so we can consider obtaining supply in future years.
