Ordering tree and shrub seedlings

Thanks for your interest in purchasing tree seedlings from Wisconsin's reforestation program.

Our seedlings are available to all Wisconsin landowners regardless of residence. Trees must be planted in Wisconsin and used only for conservation purposes such as forest products, wildlife habitat and erosion control. State nursery stock may not be resold, used for ornamental, decorative or landscaping purposes, or Christmas tree production.

The minimum order is (a) a packet of at least 300 trees and/or shrubs, (b) 500 shrubs or (c) 1000 trees. Tree and shrub seedlings must be ordered in increments of 100 of each species. Contact the WDNR nursery or call 715-424-3700 with any questions.
