Order forms for 2014 Seedling Conservation Trees from the Colorado State Forest Service (CSFS) are now available at the CSU Extension, Bent County office, located at the fairgrounds in Las Animas. The program’s aim is to encourage landowners to plant new windbreaks. A windbreak will protect property and livestock from the wind, reduce soil erosion, and enhance property values.
Conditions of Sale state that trees must be used for conservation purposes only, and there are no guarantees for survival. Bare root trees are available in multiples of 25 per species at a cost of $26 per 25. Potted trees are available in multiples of 30 per species at a cost of $76.00 for trees from 5 to 12 inches in height. Small potted trees cost $65 for trees from 3 to 6 inches in height. Small potted trees cost $65 for trees from 3 to 6 inches in height in lots of 30. Some species also come in lots of 50, 3-6″tall, for $90.00. Extra-large potted trees, 1-2′, are available in boxes of four at $$36.00. Sales tax is added to the price of the trees as well as a handling fee of 1- percent of the tree cost of a minimum of $5.00.
Two free publications are available at the Extension Office. A selection Guide gives a description of the various trees available. A Planning, Planting, and Care Guide will aide in pre and post delivery decisions.
The deadline for ordering is March 10, with delivery in late March. Order soon as there is a limited supply and high demand for some species. Trees are offered on a first come/first serve basis. Rocky Mountain Junipers and Eastern Red Cedars sell out quickly as they grow well in our area.
Please stop by CSU Extension, Bent County to pick up an order form, look on the SE Area Extension website (http://www.extension.colostate.edu/SEA/) or call (719)456-0764 and we will send you a Tree Order form.
