MPCD sells tree seedlings and perennials through a partnership with the Colorado State Forest Service Nursery.
Spring Tree Seedling Sale Uncertainty
At the end of August 2022, MPCD and numerous other Colorado State Forest Service Nursery cooperators across the West were notified by the Nursery that would not be accepting orders for Spring 2023. Per the CSFS Nursery announcement,
“The CSFS Seedling Tree Nursery is taking critical steps to improve facilities, expand staffing and increase production of quality seedlings. These improvements are essential as the Nursery has experienced significant staff shortages and failing infrastructure, and this focus on updates will unfortunately require short-term reductions in production at the facility. No new orders will be accepted at this time. We do not have an estimated time yet for new orders. This will depend on the results of the assessment and the implementation of its findings.”
As a result of this announcement, Middle Park Conservation District is currently looking for another local nursery to fulfill our seedling needs. We have not solidified anything yet, but should we find a suitable alternative to the CSFS Nursery, we will post the announcement here and in our next newsletter. We will also send out a notification to all previous tree seedling buyers.
If none of our plants or seed mixes fit your needs and you believe MPCD will be unable to order the plants or seeds you desire, here are some other sources for Colorado Native Plants:
