The Logan County Soil and Water Conservation
District will sponsor a tree sale program again this year to
encourage more tree planting. The trees may be used for any purpose
and planted in town or country. Some uses are windbreaks, timber
production, wildlife cover, Christmas trees and ornamental planting.
Evergreen species being
offered this year are white pine, Canaan fir, Norway spruce,
Colorado blue spruce and Douglas fir. Hardwoods, ornamentals and
shrubs being offered are red maple, sugar maple, red oak, white oak,
green ash, river birch, black walnut, eastern redbud, white
flowering dogwood, red osier dogwood, silky dogwood and high-bush
The evergreens will be sold in bundles of 25, and the
hardwoods will be sold in bundles of five. These trees will be sold
at a cost of approximately $1 each. If you cannot use 25 trees, you
might want to combine your order with a neighbor. Individual trees
may be purchased at a cost of $2 each.

Marking flags will be sold. These flags may be placed by the
trees to help locate them for mowing. A two-year time release
fertilizer tablet is also available. Orders will also be taken for
tree protectors. These are corrugated plastic wraps that protect the
tree from deer, rodents, weather and mowers. The wraps promote
straighter and faster growth.
Trees are scheduled to be delivered in April. You will be
notified as to the exact date for pickup. Please call the district
office at 732-2010, ext. 3, or stop by the office at 1650 Fifth
Street Road, Lincoln, for more information and an order form.
Deadline for ordering trees is March 2.
