Seedling Tree Program
Summit County Extension is working with the Middle Park Conservation District and the Colorado State Forest Service (CSFS) to provide seedling trees to landowners at a reasonable cost. CSFS seedlings are intended for conservation purposes only, such as reforestation, windbreaks or wildlife habitat. Seedlings are grown at the CSFS Nursery from native stock and include many species suitable to Summit County's high elevations. 

The Seedling Tree program for Summit County has ended for the 2013-14 season, but seedlings are still available from the Colorado State Forest Service Nursery.  You can call the nursery directly for ordering information at (970)491-8429.
