About the Montana Conservation Seedling Nursery


The Montana Conservation Seedling Nursery is part of the Montana DNRC and is overseen by the Legislature.  We receive no tax dollars and are completely funded by the sales of our seedlings and plants.

Our Mission is to provide plants for conservation projects that occur throughout the state of Montana.

We provide bareroot and containerized stock that is derived from locally adapted and source identified seedlings. We provide seedlings for private landowners; county conservation districts; government agencies; conservation organizations; and the forestry industry throughout the state of Montana.



Nursery Updates


We are open from 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM.

We are now taking orders for spring 2020. The current inventory list can be found on the link to the right of the page.  

Our Webpage is currently under construction.

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.

The Nursery can no longer ship the Liquid Plantskydd via FedEx. This product must be picked up at the Nursery or shipped 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


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, local Conservation District, or DNRC Service Forester. The Montana Conservation Seedling Nursery works closely with these entities.

* New Customers must order a minimum of 150 bareroot or small containerized seedlings; or at least 48 of our 100 and 175 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.
