Steamboat Springs The Routt County Conservation District is looking for people interested in serving on its board. If you would like to have more involvement in your community, in agriculture issues and in rural life in Routt County, let us know. The RCCD board meets once a month on the first Thursday at the Pine Grove Center. The Board is looking for people representing all areas of Routt County. Call us for more information or to attend a Board meeting.
Don't forget that RCCD rents equipment and sells products for your agricultural projects. Call us for a detailed list and price quote. Dial 879-3225, ext. 3, and ask for Sarah.
Seedling trees for sale
It's again time to think about buying trees for next spring (delivery of trees is early May). Get your name on the list today to get the first mailing of applications. Certain species sell out fast, so orders returned sooner are more likely to get the species and size desired. Trees are great for a number of conservation efforts: reforestation (planting lodgepole pine now will help your forest recover after this bark beetle epidemic), windbreaks/living snow fences, Christmas trees, wildlife habitat, visual screens, erosion control and noise barriers. Talk to us and find out what species will work for you and your efforts. Trees come in bundles of 30 (bare root) or 50 (potted). We have new products available for purchase to help your trees survive - tree mats that prevent competition from other plants, and tree tubes that keep trees warmer in winter and help prevent grazing by elk and deer. Stop by our office today to get your name on the mailing list. The RCCD is located at 1475 Pine Grove Road, Suite 201A. Call 879-3225, ext. 3, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
