Annually, the Hamlin County Conservation District (HCCD) allows thousands of trees to be purchased by landowners and residents of Hamlin County.  These trees are inexpensive and are of the finest stock from nurseries in the Tri State area.  Hamlin CD has over 50 species of conservation grade trees, shrubs, and conifers to choose from.  The cost of these bare root conservation stock is $40 per bundle of 25 of the same deciduous species or $2.35 each.  Conifers are available for $50 per bundle of 25 or $2.65 each.  Conifers are also available in plugs for $2.90 each. 


Fruit trees are also available.  Apple trees are sold at $35 each.  Most are semi-dwarf trees, and are 5' - 8' when delivered.  Varieties include:  Cortland, Honeycrisp, McIntosh, and Sweet Sixteen.

Pear trees are sold at $38 each and Plum trees are sold at $32-38 each.  Plum tree varieties are Superior and Toka Plum (which is a pollinator).  The pear tree variety is Patten. 


Trees need to be ordered by mid-November each year for the next spring planting!!!  Please note...Our tree order form is not a complete listing. Please visit the Tree Descriptions page for specific descriptions, or visit the N.D. Tree Handbook.  We also have a growing list of Garden Perennials.   Please check back regularily, the information is continually changing.


Hamlin Conservation District offers a machine planting service that includes a tree planter and a tree crew of three or four people.  The purpose of a machine planting would be to provide farmstead or field windbreaks, wildlife habitat plantings, or restoration.  Along with the planting service, the District also offers a fabric application service.  The investment you made in tree planting needs to be protected.  Applying fabric helps keep out the weeds and in the moisture.  Hamlin Conservation District encourages all residents to utilize the local conservation district to start or add to their own beautification plans by purchasing stock from the Conservation District.  Whether you own a city lot and want to plant a privacy hedge line, or own a few acres and wish to plant a windbreak or shelter belt, our trees will meet all needs.  HCD and its affiliates can also offer technical advice on tree plantings for windbreaks and shelter belts upon request.  The District can also refer  landowners to agency partners for cost share options.  Please check in with your local office to see what cost share is available.
