Fall is here and that means it’s time to think trees! Yep, you heard me right! Sublette County Conservation District (SCCD) would like to remind everyone of our Seedling Tree Program that will be launching Nov. 1, 2021.
SCCD’s Tree Program offers seedlings and bareroots to landowners with at least two acres at a nominal cost for the following conservation uses: living snow/wind fence, visual screens, noise barriers, erosion control and once established, wildlife habitat.
Orders can be placed on our online form found in the Tree Program selection of our Programs tab at www.sublettecd.com. Order forms can also be dropped off at our office, located at 217 Country Club Lane. Seedlings will be available for pickup in late April/early May. We also sell products for seedling planting/survival such as fertilizer tablets, polymer, bamboo stakes, weed barrier fabric and staples, wind/snow guards and more!
All items for sale and their cost can be found on our website under the Tree Program and will be added to this year’s order form.
