2020 Tree Distribution

The Meeker SWCD’s tree distribution will be held at the SWCD building on the Meeker County Fairgrounds in Litchfield from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday, April 24, and from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 25. Enter through the west gate of the fairgrounds and follow the signs.

For the health and safety of the public and SWCD staff, social distancing during distribution will be maintained. All customers will be asked to form a line and remain in their vehicles with staff approaching vehicles at a safe distance to serve customers one at a time. This is a change to past procedures. Joe Norman, District Technician, acknowledges that distribution may take a bit longer this year and comments, “We appreciate everyone’s understanding as we work to make this service safe for everyone.”

Landowners are encouraged to mail in tree orders with full payment in advance, preferably by April 17, to help facilitate a smoother distribution. Order forms are available here. We are sold out of 

  • bare root Norway spruce,
  • bare root white pine, 
  • bare root hazelnut, and
  •  bare root white cedar.

Those who are not able to pre-order trees are also encouraged to come to the distribution. You will be served at your vehicle as efficiently as possible.

 Contact Joe Norman at Meeker SWCD, 320-535-3078, with questions.  

Matt and Joelle Woetzel of rural Dassel have been named Meeker SWCD's Outstanding Conservationists for 2019.
