Tree Sales

Fillmore Soil and Water Conservation District tree program was developed to provide landowners with an affordable and convenient way to purchase trees and shrubs for conservation practices, such as windbreaks, shelterbelts, living snowfences and wildlife habitat.  This program is offered yearly with sales beginning in the late fall and delivered in mid-April.  The trees/shrubs may be picked up at the Conservation Building located at 912 Houston Street in Preston.  Customers will be notified by mail of the pickup dates and time.

The 2019 Tree program is completed for this year.  A huge Thank you to everyone that purchased trees this year.  Watch for the 2020 tree order form which will be available in November, 2019.

Tree mats with staples and fertilizer packets are available year round.       

Tree Planter Rental Policy - Two tree planters are available for rent.  The green Miller Tree Planter is a pull behind machine with electric hydraulics to raise and lower the machine.  It requires a hitch pin for towing, not a trailer ball.  This planter is best used for larger hardwood stock and up to 1 gallon potted stock.

The yellow Detco Tree Planter is a pull behind machine and requires a 2 inch ball hitch for towing.

Each planter can be easily pulled by a tractor of 40 HP or higher.  For your safety, operate the tractor at as low a speed as practical for conditions.  In no instance should the speed be faster than a moderate walking pace (3 mph). 

Cost for rental is $25.00 per half day, $50.00 for a whole day with a $25.00 minimum charge.
