The district assisted with many tree disease diagnosis this past spring and summer.  Several new tree problems arose this year throughout the area due to the wet spring and summer.

2016 Tree, Shrub, and Seedling Tree Program (forms updated 2/3/2016)

Lake DeSmet Conservation District sells seedling trees each year and also provides assistance with windbreak design and planting tips and guides.

LDCD’s 2016 Tree Program is now under way!! You can get your order form for trees and shrubs here. We also have an order form for Blue Spruce trees, which is available here. They are available in 4 ft. 5 ft. and 6 ft. sizes. These order forms including seedling tree and perennial flower order forms can also be picked up at the District Office, 621 West Fetterman, Buffalo, WY.

Trees available through the Lake DeSmet Conservation District program are available to the residents of northern Johnson County.

Please check out our newly published  A Guide to the Trees In Buffalo to see what trees are thriving in Buffalo.  The booklets are available at our office free of charge.

Another publication with good information for Wyoming tree owners’ is the Wyoming Tree Owner’s Manual. More good information can be found on Wyoming Tree Information site.

Another very informative publication is “Plants with Altitude” from Barnyards and Backyards - which discusses regionally native plants for Wyoming Gardens.



The Wyoming Association of Conservation Districts (WACD) WEB site has several videos that that will assist you in your tree planting activities. LDCD would like to call your attention to the videos on Living Snow Fences and Windbreaks that can be found at their site.


Here are links to three Colorado State University Nursery Publications that will help with the planning, buying, planting and care of your new seedling trees:
