We are not selling bareroot seedlings for 2018, however we still have some containerized seedlings available. Call for availability. The current inventory can be found on the link to the right, we will update the inventory frequently.

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.

How To Order

There are two ways that you may order:

  • Fill out the printable order form (2 pages) with your desired species and mail it, along with your payment, to the Nursery.

If you need help planning out your conservation project, we recommend contacting your County Extension Agent or your local Conservation District. The Montana Conservation Seedling Nursery works closely with these entities.

* New Customers must order a minimum of 250 bareroot or small containerized seedlings; or at least 48 of our 100 cubic inch seedlings.

* Established Customers must order within the quantities for each lot.

Every customer must Complete the Conservation Planting Plan (located on page 2 of the order form) to ensure the seedlings are being used for conservation purposes and not for landscaping. The plan may be approved by your local county extension agent, conservation district personnel, or by nursery staff.

Visit the Ordering Information page for more details.
