The Double El Conservation District offers seedling trees, at production costs, to landowners through the Trees for Conservation Program sponsored by the Colorado State Forest Service. The Colorado State Forest Service tree program enables farmers, ranchers, and rural landowners to obtain trees at a nominal cost. The program's aim is to encourage landowners to plant new forest, establish effective windbreaks to reduce erosion, protect homes, cropland, livestock and highways, and enhance wildlife habitat. Our trees and shrubs are grown for their conservation benefits only Ornamental qualities such as color, degree of flowering, fruit production and others are not guaranteed. Delivery of trees will be in mid-April on a week day. There are different delivery days for each tree form so note the dates due and pick up. The seedlings have been grown locally and the species have been specially selected to give a higher survival rate. All CSFS programs and services are offered on a nondiscriminatory basis, without regard to race color, national origin, religion, sex, martial status, or handicap.
