"This is a great opportunity for landowners interested in tree planting practices such as field windbreaks, farmstead shelterbelts, living snow fences, riparian buffers, wildlife plantings, lakeshore stabilization, or general forestry practices to order trees through the SWCD's Conservation Tree Program. They can also pick up information on a variety of programs that may provides them with financial incentives or cost-share to assist them with the costs of establishing these tree planting practices" said Darren Newville, EOT SWCD District Manager.
The staff at the SWCD office can help determine if a landowner is eligible for one of these programs and assist them with the appropriate application process.
