Once a year, the Freeborn County Soil & Water Conservation District holds an annual tree sale. We offer a variety of trees and shrubs used for conservation and wildlife benefits. Our trees are sold in bundles of 25, and single 1-2 gallon containers.
Don't worry! We won't fill up your inbox with junk, only emails regarding our tree sales. Mailing addresses shared with us will receive our annual newsletter that contains our tree order form.

The Freeborn County Soil & Water Conservation District can assist landowners with farmstead and field windbreak design, species selection, on-site layout, and planting equipment rental.
Each soil type has a Conservation Tree & Shrub Group (CTSG). A CTSG represents a summary of climate and soil conditions that affect tree or shrub growth and survival. This number helps us determine which trees/shrubs would be best to plant for each soil type and is one of the first step we take when assisting landowners with tree selection.
