Conservation District Provides Willow Plantings

Among the programs available to county landowners, the Sheridan County Conservation District can provide willows for stream bank stabilization.

Conservation District Manager Carrie Rogaczewski said the district doesn't provide trees but does make willow cuttings available.

Rogaczewski said vegetation really helps with bank stability.

She said the conservation district's contractor takes cuttings from willow trees that are in the area or that might be nearby. She said the cuttings will root when placed in soil, and grow into willow trees.

The conservation district has been providing the cuttings for a number of years, and Rogaczewski said the service is free.

She said anyone who's interested can call or email the conservation district or contact the district via the website.
