Colorado State Forest Service Conservation Seedling Program
The Colorado State Forest Service (CSFS) Nursery, located on the Foothills Campus of Colorado State University in Fort Collins, is the state’s leader in producing low-cost, Colorado-grown seedling trees and shrubs for conservation purposes. The CSFS Nursery produces more than 40 species, all selected for their hardiness and adaptability.
Ordering plants from this program allows landowners to plant large swaths affordably. Think - $48.95 for a single 5-gallon plant? Or 25 bare-root plants for $35?
This program just may become a spring ritual for you!
