Media Contact:  Teresa DeMars, Rice SWCD, 507-332-5408,


The Rice Soil and Water Conservation District is pleased to announce that they are now accepting orders for the 2021 Rice SWCD Tree Sale. From shrubs to beautiful trees, the district has a great selection of species to meet the conservation needs of property owners. The trees may be planted in urban and rural areas for windbreaks, wildlife habitat, agroforestry, erosion control, and other conservation practices.

The Rice SWCD Tree Sale features twenty-four species of trees and shrubs available for spring planting. New species available this year include Canaan Fir and Paper Birch. Most of the stock is bare-root, but a few potted evergreens are available. The district may also be able to special order species not listed on the order form.

Orders are taken from December into April on a first come first serve basis. Many species sell out, so after February 26th, please call for availability. The trees typically arrive around the second week of April. The district also offers tree mats, fertilizer packets, and other tree supplies that can help make your planting a success.

Again this year, tree orders can be placed online and be paid by credit card. Visit the Rice SWCD’s online store at A paper order form may also be downloaded from the website. If you would like to receive a paper copy through the mail, please contact the Rice SWCD office at 507-332-5408.

 If you are looking to restore your woodlot, windbreak, or want to create woodland habitat for wildlife or birds, please contact the Rice SWCD office for assistance with planning and implementation. District staff with backgrounds in forestry are available to answer any questions you may have regarding species selection and can help you make the right choice of trees and shrubs.  Contact the district today!
