The Meeker Soil and Water Conservation District’s tree distribution will be held at the Meeker SWCD building on the Meeker County Fairgrounds in Litchfield from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Friday, April 26, and from 9 a.m.-noon Saturday, April 27. Enter through the west gate and follow the signs.
Landowners can still -pre-order trees to assure their availability and quicker pick up at distribution, but walk-ins are also welcome. Customers who are picking up trees that have been -pre-ordered and paid in full will be given priority at distribution.
Whether you are looking to protect your investments by putting a shelter belt around your feedlot, farm yard, or home; reduce water pollutants by restoring tree and shrub vegetation along stream banks and lake shores; expanding bird and animal habitat by planting wildlife-friendly species; or simply provide shade or greenery, Meeker SWCD has trees to fit your needs. Bare-root trees are sold in bundles of 25 for $1.50 per tree. A few varieties of conifers in pots are available for $10-$15 each.
Meeker SWCD also provides planting and tree-matting services, tree tubes, and tree mats.
