Could anyone give me information on how to market trees in a rural setting? We started a tree farm last year 2003-04 and have had a little trouble finding a market for our species, we have a lot of native species for Kansas, and thought when we started that we wouldnt have a problem since most the farmers around here plant shelter belts from nursery stock. We tried going to the USDA office since they offer farmers programs for habitat wind break projects but found out they purchase their stock from the state university for cheap, and most the farmers dont want to buy because the USDAs .offer is to their benefit. We dont really have landscape companies since there is no building of houses in our area within 60 miles. so we need other resources to find a market . If anyone could help us or direct us to a resource we would appreciate it .
