Cone and seed collection

DNR forester and landowner walking in landowner's woodlands

Do you have or know of a woodland or forest that produces large amounts of seeds or cones? You can sell viable tree seeds to the Minnesota State Forest Nursery.

Before collecting seeds or cones, contact one of the DNR seed drop-off locations for more information and directions on how to present them for purchase.
