Conservation Tree Program Cost Share
Cost-share assistance is available for the planting process.
The MNNRD offers assistance through the Nebraska Soil and Water Conservation Program (NSWCP). This program pays for 50%, up to $4,000.00, on tree, fence, and either weed barrier fabric or dripline.
Sign-up begins in May. Applications can be found here.
Contact the office with applications and questions.
Cost-share through the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) is available through the NRCS. The NRCS and NRD work cooperatively on these plantings with all planting done by the NRD. Please contact your local NRCS office for assistance.
