Tree Service
The Douglas Soil and Water Conservation District’s tree program was developed to provide landowners with an affordable option to establish trees for conservation practices.

Trees provide many conservation benefits including reduced soil erosion, wildlife habitat improvement, protect water quality, and increased aesthetics.

Our inventory includes a variety of small shrubs, large shrubs/small trees, deciduous trees and conifers (bare root/potted).
