The roots of conservation run deep in Nebraska, the birthplace of Arbor Day. Many millions of trees have been planted in the state since settlement, and each year hundreds of thousands more are added by Nebraska's Natural Resources Districts. These trees shade and shelter homes, reduce soil erosion, protect crops and livestock, provide food and cover for wildlife, buffer noise, provide valuable products and add beauty to the landscape.

Now you can learn about species that are recommended for use in Nebraska in the new Conservation Trees for Nebraska app. Produced by Nebraska's NRDs with assistance from the Nebraska Forest Service, the app features species information and photos for almost four dozen conifers, deciduous trees and shrubs suitable for conservation plantings in Nebraska.
