State Tree Programs (Links only)
« on: March 15, 2011, 10:05:38 AM »
Jason Akers in his interview with Jack mentioned a tree program sponsored by his state. This prompted me to see if there was one in my state (Virginia) and there is. They offer seedlings for several trees and shrubs including Chinese Chestnut, Apple and Hazelnut. Prices start at 10 plants for $20 and get cheaper with higher quantities.

Virginia Department of Forestry State Nurseries:
http://www.dof.virginia.gov/nursery/index.htm
Order Page:
https://secure01.virginiainteractive.org/shoppingcart/cgi-bin/shopva.cgi?store=506

I thought it might be useful to list programs that are available in each state.

I'm making this a sticky.

Please keep it to links to the state programs.

Please don't fill it with discussion, this could end up as an awesome resource.

Here's a thread about it (with tons of links to them) I actually started a long time ago when I first found out about the programs. 

http://thesurvivalpodcast.com/forum/index.php?topic=13524.0

I did it for Region 3 but others started adding to it, a lot like here.  Glad to hear this interests you all!

Thanks for that other link.  I pulled them all together here.  I figures that since there were a couple of bad links in there that putting them all into a single post would work better than merging the topics.

Arkansas Seedlings

Louisiana

Wonder if those who live close to state lines can pick up trees in neighboring states.

My father in law purchased some aspen and pine seedlings maybe 10 years ago and they are nearly all doing very well... very affordable way to add trees to your property. These small seedlings need a bit of extra care the first few years, though... watering, etc.

So I put them all together in one spot on my blog... not just the ones listed here, but for every state that actually had a program...

In addition to the New Jersey program Doc K listed on his site, the NJ Dept. of Environmental Protection also runs a seedling program:

http://www.state.nj.us/dep/parksandforests/forest/nj_forest_nursery.htm

"The reforestation program provides public and private landowners tree seedlings for reforestation. Reforestation is important part of conservation in New Jersey's forests.

Seedlings available in both conifer and hardwood species
There is no minimum acreage required to be eligible to buy seedlings
Minimum order is 100 seedlings, or one packet
Orders accepted from December to April 1
Delivery/Pickup between March 15 and April 30
"

The cost is $25-$40 per packet (100 seedlings) depending upon the specie purchased. So as long as you're a property owner in the state you can get 100 seedlings of the tree of your choice. Seems like a heckuva lot of oaks I'd be planting on my 50x 120 plot, no? :)

CAL FIRE has a lot of money for assistance programs for planting trees and doing other forest improvement work.

http://calfire.ca.gov/resource_mgt/resource_mgt_forestryassistance.php

If you have any specific questions you can send me a message and I can track something down for you. Don't worry, I am with the government and I really do want to help  8)

Plan to order lots from the Minnesota site once it becomes active again. The prices are cheap.

Missouri Link.  We order from the all the time, it's a great program.  Need to order early though, as they only have a limited quantity.
