Since the early 1930s, Minnesota’s state forest nurseries have produced tree seedlings for a wide array of conservation purposes. This spring state forest nurseries will celebrate the planting of their billionth tree. Arbor Day is April 24, and May is designated Arbor Month—both good occasions to plant trees. Visit state forest nurseries for more information on obtaining seedlings, advice on appropriate trees to plant, or information on nearby private nurseries, or call 800-657-3767.
