Columbia County Land & Water Conservation Dept. has sold and helped plant over 1,611,722 Trees.

The LWCD is offering a County tree sales program that requires a minimum of 25 trees (same species) per order. There are no restrictions on where to plant or how to use these trees. This is helping to provide a service to landowners within the county and throughout the state, who just want a few trees for landscaping, wildlife habitat, Christmas trees, etc. (The LWCD assists the DNR Forester with providing information concerning the DNR tree sales program. The DNR program requires a larger reserve order, some at a minimum of 1000 trees per order.)

Knowing the real value of this program is impossible because of variables. However, a report by Michigan State University states that a fifty-year-old tree will have provided the following:

$ 31,250.00 worth of oxygen
$ 62,000.00 worth of air pollution control
$ 37,500.00 worth of water recycling
$ 31,250.00 worth of soil erosion controls
$162,000.00 total worth per tree
