Conservation Purposes

The nursery plants are available to all, but must be used for conservation purposes, which include:

  • Planting shade trees in an effort to reduce air conditioning use
  • Planting more drought tolerant species to reduce use of water
  • Creating pollinator habitat
  • Species diversification in response to insect/disease in current tree populations
  • Creation or maintenance of protective windbreaks or shelterbelts for crops/livestock
  • Creating or enhancing living snow fences or wildlife habitats
  • Reforestation of land after natural disaster
  • Mining reclamation
  • Carbon sequestration
