The San Juan Conservation District is taking orders for seedling trees and shrubs to be planted especially for conservation planting, shelter belts, reforestation and wildlife habitat enhancement.

The seedlings come from the Colorado State Forest Service Nursery in Fort Collins. Bare root trees are available in multiples of 25 per species and potted trees are available in multiples of 30 or 50 per species.

Landowners can obtain a seedling order form from the San Juan Conservation District located at 505A Piedra Road or the CSU Cooperative Extension Service at the Archuleta County Fair Building.

Orders will be taken through March 21. Place your order early for best selection. The trees will be available to pick up on April 10.

For more information, call 731-3615.
