Order Your Conservation Seedlings for Spring Planting!!!
Place Orders Now! As the demand for conservation tree seedlings grows, the Upper Elkhorn NRD will be taking orders from now until March 1st. Trees are available on a first come first serve basis and are available in a variety of species consisting of conifers, broadleaves and shrubs. Hand plant trees should be ordered in bundles of 25 while machine plant orders will be based on the windbreak design. The NRD can provide technical assistance to cooperators who would like help designing a new windbreak or renovating an old one. The technician will suggest the type of trees best suited for your soil type and design a layout beneficial to your area. The NRD also offers conservation weed mulch to help promote the survival of new seedlings. Conservation weed mulch is installed over the seedlings to help control weeds and retain moisture. This practice can be very beneficial to young windbreaks and should be considered when placing your order. Trees and mulch purchased from the Upper Elkhorn NRD may be eligible for local or state cost share funds. For more information or to place an order, contact your local NRCS office, Jake Morten Forestry, Wildlife and Resource Conservationist at the Upper Elkhorn NRD at 301 N. Harrison Street, O’Neill (402) 336-3867 or Click Here for more information.
