One of the ongoing projects of the District is the annual tree sale. Trees and supplies are provided at a nominal price to persons on 2 or more acres to help establish windbreaks, living snow fences, or wildlife habitats.

Equipment Rentals
tree planter

Wide variety of low cost seedling trees from the Colorado State Forest Service Nursery.

Grass Seed

Weed Barrier
Fabric mesh that allows moisture to pass through while protecting against evaporation and weed competition.

Fertilizer Tablets
Slow disolving nursery formula fertilizer gives trees a boost while becoming established. Reccomended usage is one tablet per tree at planting. Use on established trees at a rate of one tablet per 1/2 inch of trunk diameter.

Polymer Crystals
Moisture absorbing crystals that help keep moisture available near roots during early development. Reccomended usage is 1/2 cup of saturated polymer per tree. One pound does approximately 50 trees.

Polymer Root Dip
Reccomended for use when planting bare root trees. This polymer makes a slurry that adheres to the root system to moisten and protect. One quarter pound does approximately 50 trees.

Rabbit Guards
plastic mesh tubing that protests against rabbit, rodent, deer, gopher, and vole damage
