Farmers, ranchers, and acreage owners plant trees to conserve soil, energy, water, wildlife, and the atmosphere.

Conservation Trees are an integral part of production agriculture as they improve crop yields and preserve topsoil for future abundant harvests. Planted along streams and wetlands, they prevent erosion and clean the water. Planting Conservation Trees in marginal areas of agricultural land attracts wildlife, sequesters carbon, and helps with flood control.

Farmers and ranchers are encouraged to plant trees as an integral part of production agriculture.
