Tree and Prairie Seed Program

Dear Landowners,
Since 1993, Washington County Land Conservation has encouraged local planting of native woodland and prairie species through our native Tree & Prairie Seed Program. More than 1,000,000 trees have been purchased over the past 25+ years! We order bare root stock in large quantities, allowing us to receive a substantial discount off retail prices; then package the trees for individual orders, passing the savings on to you!

2024 Program Information Coming Soon!  Orders Due Friday, March 1st.
