  • Planting for the Future

    Trees and forests are an important resource, providing watershed protection, wildlife habitat, recreational opportunities, and protection for crops, soil and livestock. Currently about 800,000 acres – or 1.8 percent – of North Dakota’s total land area is forested, but about 70 percent of North Dakota’s forest land is privately owned. Planting for the Future’s goal is to work with industry, wildlife groups, and private landowners to create large-scale tree and shrub plantings on private land that will serve as habitat for future generations.

    The program will achieve this by providing trees to the landowner at no cost. Landowners will only be asked to provide in-kind assistance with site preparation, equipment usage, planting, and care and maintenance of plants. Tree specialists will provide the tree planting equipment and will be available to assist with project planning and supervision during planting.

    Eligibility

    The program is open to any conservation-minded landowners within the state of North Dakota who want to develop and improve habitat on their land. Projects will be tailored to meet the preferences and priorities of each landowner; however, projects must meet the following conditions:
