The Fond du Lac County Land and Water Conservation Department offers seedling trees for the following spring planting. The trees can be used to establish windbreaks, develop wildlife habitat, or reforest small areas. The tree forms become available late September/early October.
The trees are sold in increments of 50 and are sold on a first come, first served basis. Distribution of trees takes place in mid April. Varieties and prices vary from year to year. For more information, or a complete list of trees and prices, please contact the Fond du Lac County Land and Water Conservation Department at (920) 906-4680.
To help with postage expenses, the department requests anyone wishing to receive an order form for the following year via email to please send an email to: email@example.com with the subject line of "TREE SALE" or provide a self addressed stamped business size envelope to the department to receive an order form via regular mail.
