Conservation Trees for Nebraska

Tree Booklet Cover

Conservation Trees benefit both people and animals. They shade and shelter homes, reduce soil erosion, protect crops and livestock, provide food and cover for wildlife, buffer noise, provide valuable products and add beauty to our landscape.

This tree planting tradition continues today. Each year, Nebraska's Natural Resources Districts (NRDs) help landowners plant more than a million trees in the state.
