We are also offering a variety of Special Order tall trees. Please review our 2023 Tree Order sheet for species and prices.
The supplier for the Fruit and Larger trees has limited our supply for the 2023 planting season. If you didn't get your order in, please keep us in mind for 2024.
It is helpful if trees are ordered by mid-November each year for the next spring planting!!! This helps to insure you get the variety you would like.

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 regularly, 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 is 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 tree service will meet all needs. HCCD 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.

Providing clean water to our livestock is imperative to livestock health. As a district located in an agricultural setting, we are continuously searching for ways to support healthy and sustainable livestock production.
Above-ground water systems are a popular tool to deliver clean water to pastures. The Hamlin Conservation District handles High Density Polyethylene black pipe, rated at 200 psi. The pipe is sold in rolls of 500' and 1000' in 1" diameter size and also 1000' in 1 1/2" diameter. This tough material can withstand being walked over by cattle or driven over by lighter vehicles.
"Everything we do, all we share, even whatever we amount to as a great and enduring people, begins with and rests on the sustained productivity of our agriculatural land."
