Tree Services

Annually, the Roberts Conservation District (RCD) allows thousands of trees to be purchased by landowners and residents of Roberts County. These trees are inexpensive and are of the finest stock from nurseries in the Tri State area. Roberts CD has over 50 species of conservation grade trees, shrubs and conifers to choose from.

The cost of these bare root conservation stock is $41.00 per bundle of 25 of the same species or $2.25 each. Conifers (evergreens) are $52.25 per bundle or $2.65 per tree. Larger bare root trees such as apple, pear, plum, maple and crabapple may be available however they must be pre ordered by April 1st.

RCD offers a machine planting service that includes a tree planter and a tree crew of at three or four people. The purpose of a machine planting would be to provide farmstead or field windbreaks, wildlife habitat plantings, or restoration.

RCD encourages all residents to utilize the local conservation district to start or add to their own beautification plans by purchasing stock from the RCD. Whether you own a city lot and want to plant a privacy hedge line or own a few of acres and wish to plant a windbreak or shelter belt our trees will meet all needs.  RCD and it’s affiliates can also offer technical advice on tree plantings for windbreaks and shelter belts upon request.
