Faribault County SWCD To Hold Tree Open House on Friday

Each year conservation trees can be purchased from the Soil and Water Conservation District for field and farmstead windbreaks.  The trees are preordered and sold to landowners on a first come first served basis.

 Fairbault County SWCD Co Program Administrator Nate Carr says that their office will be holding a tree open house on Friday, August 5th, from 8:30am to 3:30pm, at their office at the Ag Center in Blue Earth, for landowners who want to pre-order trees or just to see what’s available.

Free technical assistance is also available from the SWCD for developing a field or farmstead windbreak plan.  The SWCD also has a tree planting service for planting a large number of trees, or offers use of a tree planter to Faribault County residents for a fee.  Call 526-2388 or stop by their office in the Ag Center for further information.
