Tree Sale

The 2020 tree sale will begin mid-November! You will be able to place an order online or with a paper order form.

Each Spring the Washington Conservation District holds a tree sale for county landowners to purchase high quality bare root seedlings at a low cost for urban and rural conservation purposes, such as windbreaks, reforestation, erosion control, and food and cover for wildlife. The trees are sourced from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Nursery and Schumacher's Nursery & Berry Farm.  The Washington Conservation District cannot control the condition of live plant stock and reserves the right to substitute damaged or unsuitable stock as necessary, and is not responsible for the condition of live plant stock after the scheduled pick-up days, and provides no guarantee for its condition or survival. The trees cannot be resold. All trees are bare root and sold in bundles of 25, with the exception of our Bird Packet - a bundle of 30 trees that are particularly beneficial to birds by creating habitat and food sources for them. The trees will range in height from 7-24 inches tall at the time of pick-up. 

We have several varieties of trees that are native to Minnesota, including conifers, hardwoods, small trees, and shrubs; there are also varieties that are not native but work well in Washington County.  For more information on the types of trees available, refer to the order form or online ordering page. For more information or questions about the tree sale, please contact Jessica Thiel (email) or by phone at 651-330-8220 x 30.
