Tree Programs

Windbreak The NRD cost-shares with District landowners and community groups to purchase and plant trees. We also sell seedling trees to landowners at a great price through our popular Conservation Forestry program.

Conservation Forestry (seedling tree) Program - Purchase seedling trees for windbreaks and wildlife habitat. The NRD combines orders with Nebraska's 22 other NRDs to get a great price.

Community Forestry Program - NRD help for various community groups to purchase trees.

Tree Planting Program - The NRD will provide cost-shared planting services to landowners wanting to plant between 200 and 1,500 trees. Contact the NRD for rates and more information.

Tree Cost-Sharing Program - Landowners wanting to plant between 1,500 and 4,000 trees can get NRD cost-sharing for both the purchase and planting of the trees. You may plant the trees yourself or hire a contractor. Contact the NRD for rates and more information.
