The New Mexico State Forestry Division (NMSF) Conservation Seedling Program annual spring sale gets underway December 4, 2017. More than 53,000 tree and shrub seedlings and 60 distinct species including Arizona Cypress, Ponderosa pine, Chokecherry, Lilac, Native Plum and Buffaloberry are available for purchase.

“Now is the perfect time to begin planning ahead for spring and secure the best selection of tree and shrub seedlings our program has to offer,” says Conservation Seedling Program Manager Carol Bada.

To qualify, landowners must own at least one acre of land in New Mexico and agree to use the seedlings for conservation purposes. That may include reforestation, riparian restoration, erosion control, establishing windbreaks, creating wildlife habitat or tree farms.

“It’s an inexpensive way for landowners to accomplish conservation projects on their property, while preserving their land for generations to come,” said Bada.

Seedlings can be ordered online at www.nmforestry.com or with a mail-in application form. Small container seedlings of one-year-old plants are sold in minimum lots of 49 of the same species for $80. Multi-species bundles, specific to particular ecosystems, are also available in one-season growth containers, 49 trees and/or shrubs for $80. Bareroot seedlings are $62 and come in a bundle of 50. These seedlings may be split into two distinct species of 25 each. Large container serviceberry seedlings are available in limited quantity, 20 seedlings for $52. All proceeds are reinvested back into the Conservation Seedling Program.

The final day for ordering is April 13, 2018 and early distribution begins March 6, 2018. Seedlings can be shipped via UPS, picked up at the NMSF seedling warehouse in Santa Fe (3250 Calle Princesa Juana, 87507), or at one of seven distribution points across the state including Aztec, Clayton, Clovis, Deming, Roswell, Socorro and Taos. Check your order form for specific pick up days and times. There is a $5 handling fee per order.


Payment with a Visa, Master Card or Discover Card are accepted online at www.nmforestry.com. Checks are accepted with mail-in order forms, which can be downloaded from our website. Individuals may also request order forms to be mailed to them by calling the New Mexico State Forestry Division at (505) 476-3325.
