-- The Kansas Forest Service’s (KFS) Conservation Tree Planting Program offers the public tree and shrub seedlings, as well as other items for use in conservation plantings. Plantings may function as wildlife habitat, windbreaks, woodlots, timber plantations or Christmas tree farms.
Although seedlings are distributed in both fall and spring, spring distribution is by far the largest and offers both bare-root and container-grown seedlings for sale.
Orders are being accepted through the first Monday in May, with seedling distribution beginning the second week of March. Non-plant items are offered throughout the year as availability allows.
The minimum order is one unit (25 seedlings). Orders must be placed in whole units. Partial units or mixed units, such as one-half unit of eastern red cedar and one-half unit of Austrian pine, will not be accepted. There are limited numbers of seedlings available each year, and selling out is not uncommon for many species. KFS recommends ordering as soon as possible.
To order, go online to kansasforests.org/conservation/index.shtml.
Orders may also be placed by phone at (888) 740-8733 or by mailing downloaded order forms to Kansas Forest Service, 2610 Claflin Road, Manhattan, KS, 66502. Orders are shipped via UPS anywhere in the lower 48 states but cannot be shipped to Post Office boxes.
More detailed information may be obtained online or by calling the toll-free number.
