SWCD Tree Sales

On December 1st we started to take tree orders again on our website only this year due to Covid-19.

We take tree orders until we sell all out of our stock.  

Both residents and non-residents of Stearns County may purchase trees from the SWCD.

If anyone experiences difficulties on placing an order through our website a couple of suggestions may help if your ordering errors out. Try different times of the day to order if it doesn’t go through the first time.  Also it is possible that a different web browser could be used in attempt to have the order go through or if there are difficulties on seeing all available varieties. If you need further assistance we can assist you during our office hours (Monday – Friday) over the phone to help you process your order through the website. Our office number is 320-251-7800 ext 3.


Tree Program Details:

Trees are sold in bundles of 25. Trees are sold bare-root, either as seedlings or transplants.

Payment in full is required to finalize your order and guarantee the species selections and quantities. Orders can only be placed on the website using credit card at this time. Tax exempt orders will need to contact the office to place the order. 

The SWCD reserves the right to cancel your order and refund the payment if trees become unavailable. Refunds will not be made for any other reason. Shipping charges are included in the price of the trees.

You will be notified by both postcard and email (if an email address was provided with the order) when the trees can be picked up in Waite Park. (Friday pickup only) or a late fee will apply. If you cannot pick up your trees on the scheduled pick up day please arrange for someone to pick up your order for you. 

Trees cannot be resold.


Customer is responsible for appropriate storage & planting of all stock.

Planting stock not surviving will not be replaced by Stearns County SWCD.

Trees planted on CRP and RIM land are exempt from sales tax if a landowner completes and signs an ST3 form (Please contact the SWCD office on completing tax exempt orders).
