Tips for Planting Trees: Division

Welcome to Tips Tree Planting, your go-to source for expert advice on all things gardening. Today, we’re diving into the topic of division – a crucial technique for ensuring healthy growth and regeneration of trees.

State Nursery and Tree Improvement Center

At Tips Tree Planting, we take great pride in our commitment to forest tree improvement and seedling production. With two specialized facilities – the Forest Tree Improvement Center (FTIC) in Idabel and the Albert Engstrom Forest Regeneration Center (State Nursery) in Goldsby – we strive to provide the highest quality seedlings available anywhere.

Our Forest Regeneration Program is dedicated to keeping forestlands in forest and offers tree planting as a viable solution to Oklahoma’s pressing environmental issues. We have carefully selected over 30 tree and shrub varieties that can thrive in Oklahoma’s tough climate, ensuring that our seedlings are adaptable to a wide range of planting conditions.

Ordering Seedlings

When it comes to ordering seedlings, Tips Tree Planting has you covered. Our Regeneration Staff and local Service Foresters are here to guide you in selecting the best seedlings for your specific site. Whether you’re looking to enhance timber production, improve wildlife habitat, control erosion, or create windbreaks, we have the perfect options for you.

Our seedlings are distributed as bare-root and containerized, and we also offer special options such as Genetically Improved Southern Pines and Conservation Planting Packets. To place an order, simply visit our website between October and March. Have questions? Reach out to our knowledgeable staff by calling 405-288-2385 or 800-517-3673, or send us an email.
