Mechanical Tree Plants

Contact your local NRCS for help in determining the type and number of trees needed. The NRCS technician will make arrangements for the tree order and planting service; the trees will be planted according to this plan. Trees are planted in the spring, as soon as conditions are suitable. The NRD tree coordinators will notify landowners as to the approximate date and time of the planting.

 Planting Your Own Trees

Trees to be planted by the coordinator (hand-plants) can be ordered at the NRCS office. The minimum order for hand-plant trees is a full bundle (25 or 50 trees).

 Deadline To Order Trees

The deadline for placing these orders is the second Friday in March. Customers will be notified when their hand-plant trees are available.

Cost Share Available

The LRNRD will cost share at a rate of 50% with landowners for minimum orders of 100 trees or total cost $100.00 or greater. Maximum cost share is $2000 per year.
