Fight the Gusts with Seedling Trees from the UW Extension Ag. Center

Wind is a never ending story in Wyoming, but the UW Ag. and Resource Center is again selling seedling trees this Spring to help cut down on the gusts.

The tree sale is aimed towards rural customers who are looking for wind breaks.

Planting wind breaks makes things much more comfortable during windy winters and they also help with cattle management and spring grazing.

These trees are best purchased in bulk to create the ideal wind break.

They are available in groups of twenty-five, thirty or fifty depending on what you what works.

Some trees they have available include: evergreens, deciduous tree, fruit bearing shrubs, perennials and oriental grasses.

"The intention is not necessarily for people to use these trees for landscape and they are not supposed to be used for sale in the future

They are to be used as a large grouping of trees to create that protection for a home landscape,” shared Donna Hoffman Agriculture Resource Horticulturist.

She also said there is still a variety of trees available suited to grow in Wyoming.
