Drop Off Locations

If you are collecting seeds for the Minnesota State Forest Nursery, contact your area forestry office for a list of tree species and quantities accepted and the dates and times when seeds will be purchased. Collecting, storing, and delivering large quantities of high-quality seed, you are helping to grow deciduous forest adapted to Minnesota.

Black spruce cone harvesters are needed immediately in the Northeast and Northwest regions to help us meet state and county spruce seed orders for spring 2020 reforestation. The purchase price is $70.00 per bushel. If interested, contact any drop off location listing black spruce cones for details.
