Trees for Conservation

Few conservation efforts provide the extensive and enduring benefits of planting seedling trees. Seedling trees help:

  • Reforest burned areas

  • Enhance wildlife habitat

  • Reduce soil erosion

  • Protect water supplies

  • Serve as living snow fences that provide protection from wind and snow

The CSFS Nursery produces more than 40 species, all selected for their hardiness and adaptability, which are ideal for landowners and land managers to use for conservation in Colorado’s diverse environments.

Covering Conservation

The seedling program allows farmers, ranchers, other landowners and land managers to obtain trees at a nominal cost to help achieve conservation goals, including:

  • Restoration after wildfire, flood and other natural disturbances

  • Growing shelterbelts, windbreaks and living snow fences

  • Creating and enhancing wildlife habitat

  • Protecting homes, cropland, livestock and highways

  • Increasing erosion control

  • Practicing “backyard” conservation that promotes clean air and water
