Seedlings for Conservation
The purpose of the program is to enable landowners to plant effective windbreaks that will reduce erosion, reduce energy consumption, reduce weeds, protect homes, cropland, livestock and highways and enhance wildlife habitat, all at a nominal cost to the landowner.
To participate in the seedling tree program, landowners must agree not to use the trees for ornamental or landscaping purposes. The trees cannot be resold as living plants and are grown for their conservation benefits only.
Our plant clinics are designed to help address concerns in gardens or landscapes. Idaho Master Gardeners are available in our office on Monday and Wednesday afternoons, 1-4 p.m., and Friday morning, 9 a.m. to noon, May through September.
Samples can be brought to our office Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Samples will be looked at during Plant Clinic and you will be contacted for more information and/or recommendations. Photos of plants can also be emailed to Canyon County's Idaho Master Gardener.
This is a free service, just another way that UI Extension gives back to the community.
