Montana Conservation Seedling Nursery
- The nursery provides high quality, locally adapted, source identified seedlings for use in conservation practices.
- We grow bareroot and containerized stock; variety of deciduous trees and shrubs, conifers and grasses.
- We grow for private landowners; county conservation districts; city, county, state and federal agencies; tribal agencies; conservation organizations; and the forestry industry throughout the state of Montana.
We are now taking orders for spring 2017. The initial inventory is an estimate, we should have a better idea of availability once we pull the seedlings in November. If you don't see a species you are interested in, feel free to contact the Nursery.
New for 2017, we will no longer be able to FedEx ship Cottonwoods, Aspen, and Willows in the 100 or 175 cubic inch size. They will only be available for Nursery pick up or delivery on the state truck.
If you have any other questions, please call Megan at (406) 542-4244 between 8:00 AM and 4:30 PM, or you can email us at email@example.com.
