Tree Program

Overview

The Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) office will help landowners design farmstead shelter belts, living snow fences and field windbreaks.

Order forms are mailed to individuals on the mailing list in early January. Tree order pick-up is usually the end of April, but can vary year to year. The SWCD office will send out a poster card letting you know the time, location, and date of pick-up. When placing your tree order 50% down payment is required and full payment at the time of pick-up

If you are interested in being on our tree program mailing list please contact 507-375-1225.
