Order Seedling Trees Online!

Brochure Cover

We've started taking orders for seedling trees and shrubs to be delivered next April, under our Conservation Forestry program. The approximately 30 varieties are specially selected for windbreaks and wildlife habitat, but are suitable for many more uses, too. The ordering deadline is March 25, 2016. Orders will be delivered to our custom tree cooler in early or mid-April, then stored there until you're ready to plant. Each species is sold in bundles of 25 and there are also pre-assembled acreage packages of 50 plants bundled in groups of ten.

Order your seedling trees and shrubs online HERE!

Levee Protection

(Friday, Feb. 12th) A private contractor has begun removing trees from an area close to the Salt Creek Levee, near Highway 77 and Van Dorn Street, in Lincoln. The project is expected to be completed by early next week. The project site is at the extreme north end of Wilderness Park. The trees have been determined close enough to the levee to cause a levee failure.

New Salt Creek Levee Website

The NRD has begun a multi-year project to update Lincoln's Salt Creek Levee, so it can continue to provide flood risk reduction for residents and businesses for another 50 years. A website developed by the project consultant, JEO Consulting Group, the NRD the U.S Army Corps of Engineers and the City of Lincoln will allow people in the district to monitor progress of the many individual levee projects over the next several years.

Bees, Farmers, Environment All Win

The NRD is offering one-time incentive payments to landowners who enroll land in the Conservation Reserve Program during the sign-up period that begins December first. Larger incentives will go to participants who choose to plant seed mixes that benefit the declining bee population.
