Soil Conservation

Every year we offer affordable trees
for conservation efforts. 
Windbreaks are used to reduce wind  
erosion, snow drifts, reduce drying of plants
in the summer months, reduce heating costs,
and provide shelter for animals.

Tree Order Form

Cost Share Projects 

Available for conservation practices applied to the
land for the purpose of controlling or preventing soil 
erosion, sedimentation, nutrient runoff, or other water
pollution to maintain the sustainable use of soil 
and water and other natural resources. 

Water Conservation

We can all do our part to protect our pristine
water. Natural Shoreline buffers, fertilizing lawns 
and gardens with zero phosphorus fertilizer, 
reducing, capturing, and cleansing runoff
are just a few examples of how 
we, as stewards of this land, can help. 

Lakeshore

Hubbard County is blessed to have some of
the clearest and cleanest lakes in the State of 
Minnesota. These crystal clear waters provide
a wonderful recreational venue for residents,
seasonal visitors, and vacationers alike.
