Spring Time

2021 spring season is almost here. The district will be out tree planting, running drills around to producers, implementing better management practices in watersheds across Stutsman County, and being here to help in any way we can. 

Remember to go out and check fabric on trees. Trees will eventually grow into the fabric, which can cause girdling of the trees.
