Forestry Division begins sale of native seedlings to NM landowners

Share/Save/Bookmark

SANTA FE, New Mexico — Seedlings from the New Mexico State Forestry Division will be going on sale for fall distribution starting Monday.

Nearly five dozen different species of tree and shrub seedlings will be available to New Mexico landowners as part of the division's conservation program.

Land owners must have at least an acre, and they must agree to use the seedlings for purposes such as erosion control, wildlife habitat, reforestation, windbreaks or riparian restoration.

The seedlings will be shipped in September.

Conservation forester Carol Bada says waiting for the summer heat to pass and planting the native trees and shrubs in the fall will give them a head start on growth as winter turns to spring.
