Tree Planting Services Available at Upper Loup NRD

Spring is fast approaching and so is tree planting season! The Upper Loup NRD provides many tree services from planning, planting, weed barrier installation or weed control, drip irrigation, and small acreage packages. Trees are important for the environment, they provide benefits such as producing shelter for livestock, supplying wildlife habitat, preventing soil erosion, increasing crop yields, and helping to reduce heating and cooling costs.

A wide variety of bareroot trees and shrubs are available for purchase through early May, a comprehensive list is on our website. If you aren’t sure what types of trees you would like, you may consider the popular acreage packages. Each package contains 10 trees of 5 different species suited for each purpose. The West package contains Colorado Blue Spruce, Rocky Mountain Juniper, Native Cottonwood, Sandcherry, and Gambel Oak trees. The East package offers Southwestern White Pine, Colorado Blue Spruce, Swamp White Oak, Red-osier Dogwood, and Serviceberry trees. Another package is made up of trees especially suited for wildlife. Those trees include American Plum, Red-osier Dogwood, Woods Rose, Gambel Oak, and Sandcherry.
