Low cost seedling trees and shrubs available

Man holding seedling treesDiversify your property to make it more resistant to pine beetle, mistletoe or fire mitigation. Reforest your land with fire or disease resistant trees! Tired of those winds howling through your property? Plant a windbreak! Attract birds with shrubs.

The Colorado State University Forest Service Nursery grows 2,000,000 tree and shrub seedlings statewide every year! Many of the trees will thrive at this altitude.

Seedling sales are restricted however. To qualify you must:

  • Use the seedlings for conservation practices only, such as windbreaks or wildlife habitat.
  • No seedling purchased from our nursery can be resold as a living tree or used for landscaping.
  • Seedlings are only available in lots of 1, 25 or 30 depending on kind.
