Tree Seedlings Available for 4-H Clubs

The Wisconsin DNR – State Nursery Program would like to encourage 4-H clubs and other youth groups to plant trees. Trees provide a home for wildlife, protect our soil and water, and help clean our air. The State Nursery Program has a long tradition of providing tree seedlings to 4-H, FFA and other youth groups. These seedlings may be used for reforestation, soil erosion prevention and wildlife habitat improvement. This is a great way for youth to get outdoors and learn about nature, especially those members involved in the Forestry project or other nature projects.

Here’s how your club can order:

Go online to http://dnr.wi.gov/ key word Tree Planting and download an order form for a list of available trees and prices. Or you may contact one of the two state nurseries for a tree order form. Phone (608) 375-4123 or (715) 424-3700

  1. Determine the quantity and species of trees each family would like to order. Tree seedlings come in bundles of 25 and should be ordered in increments of 25.
  2. Consolidate everyone’s order and have the club place the order.
  3. You can either choose to pick your trees up at one of the 3 nurseries or have them shipped to your county. You will receive a notice from the State Nursery Program in April about receiving your seedlings.

Normally state nursery policy requires a minimum order of 1000 trees, 500 shrubs or one packet. However the minimum order requirement is waived for 4-H and other youth groups, allowing them to consolidate orders to give students the opportunity to plant smaller tree volumes on their family’s property.
