Division of Forestry Nursery Program Form 2420-031 (R8/15)Tree and Shrub Application

Instructions

To order trees and shrubs online, please complete all form sections below. Incomplete forms will be returned. To order via our paper form, download the form [PDF], complete it and mail it with your payment.

  • Minimum order. 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.
  • Section, township and range. Provide the legal description where the trees will be planted. The section, township and range can be found on your tax receipt or by calling the County Clerk of Records.
  • Bulk (ungraded) orders. Bulk orders consist of at least 3,000 trees of one species and age. They are discounted because they are not counted or graded at the nursery and therefore may contain 10 percent more or less than the number of seedlings ordered. Bulk orders are not accepted for black walnut, aspen or wildlife shrubs.
  • DNR shipping. If picking up at the nursery, the landowner must contact the nursery by March 15 to schedule a pick-up date. Otherwise, trees will be shipped via county truck in April or May at $6 (300 to 1000 seedlings) or $0.60 per 100 for 1000+ seedlings). If you pay for this service and later cancel, you must notify the DNR nursery program before March 15 for a refund to be issued. If picking up at the Griffith or Hayward nurseries, you will be charged a shipping fee.
  • Sales tax. A 5 1/2 percent sales tax must be added to the nursery seedling prices. If the seedlings are being used for silviculture purposes then your purchase may be tax exempt. Please submit Department of Revenue Form 211 [PDF exit DNR] with your order for tax exemption.
  • $0.03 seedling surcharge. In accordance with s. Wis. Stats.28.06 (2)(m), a $0.03 per seedling surcharge is required to be added to your order to support forestry education. This surcharge applies only to PAID orders.
