The Colorado State University Forest Service Nursery grows 2,000,000 tree and shrub seedlings statewide every year! Many of the trees will thrive at this altitude.

Seedling sales are restricted however. To qualify you must:

  • Use the seedlings for conservation practices only, such as windbreaks or wildlife habitat.
  • No seedling purchased from our nursery can be resold as a living tree or used for landscaping.
  • Seedlings are only available in lots of 25 to 50 depending on kind, and in 2014/15, cost $26.00 -$90.00 per lot.
