Need trees For your property?

Dave Slattery, TPNRD Conservation Programs Coordinator, specializes in designing windbreaks or finding a tree that is right for your urban or rural property. To view the different types of trees that are offered from TPNRD, find 'Tree Types' on the side menu to the left of this page. 

Conservation Windbreak

Windbreaks are a stand of trees that conserve soil and moisture, control snow drifting, prevent wind damage to farmsteads, provide shelter for livestock, beautify an area, protect a watershed, or improve an area for wildlife. To see conservation trees and shrub varieties available state-wide, please view the tree types page on the menu to the left. For trees and shrubs available locally in the TPNRD, contact Dave at the TPNRD office in North Platte.
