It’s time to start planning for the establishment of windbreaks or shelterbelts. The Papio-Missouri River Natural Resources District has a variety of bare root seedling trees available for purchase.
The seedlings vary in size from 12 – 18 inches and cost $22 for 25 trees. Each species must be ordered in lots of 25. Cost-share funding is available if certain guidelines are met.
The Papio NRD also offers a mechanical tree planting service for .75 per tree or a minimum of $100. Certain ground preparation is sometimes required. Your trees will arrive early spring and will be kept in a Papio NRD cold storage facility. You will be notified when your trees are available for pick up.
Order forms and species descriptions are available by clicking here. Trees can be ordered until March 20, 2019.
If you have questions or would like to set an appointment for a site visit, contact John Zaugg, Field Representative for the Papio-Missouri River NRD at 402-670-4336 or via email at email@example.com.
