East Otter Tail SWCD is now offering rototilling services for tree planting site preparation in East Otter Tail County. Creating a firm seedbed for seed-to-soil contact is essential for the success of a temporary cover planting (such as timothy grass). The 7-foot tiller also creates the perfect base for installing weed matting fabric to protect your trees.
$90/hour (with a 2 hour minimum charge)
The Soil & Water Conservation District also offers a weed matting service. Weed matting helps newly planted trees get a better start because they are not competing with weeds right away. The SWCD will calculate the needed materials, order them, and install them to specifications.
