Seedling Guides and Order Form   arrow

***Important Announcement*** From CSFS:

The Nursery will NOT accept new orders for Spring 2023.

“The CSFS Seedling Tree Nursery is taking critical steps to improve facilities, expand staffing and increase production of quality seedlings. These improvements are essential as the Nursery has experienced significant staff shortages and failing infrastructure, and this focus on updates will unfortunately require short-term reductions in production at the facility. All existing orders and contracts for Spring 2023 will be fulfilled, but no new orders will be accepted at this time.”

Please see the Colorado State Forest service website at the link below for FAQ’s and more details.
