Our District's Annual Tree Seedling program is a reliable source of conifer trees for local forest owners, forest managers, and smaller private land owners. Our seeds are sourced for the Northern Idaho soils, climate, and elevation. All funds received from sales go back into the tree program. Our annual event has us selling these seedlings through the fall months for delivery in April so they are here for your spring planting.
