MSU Range Management Club Selling Christmas Tree for Fundraiser

11/27/2017 3:57:00 PM/Categories: Popular Posts, General News, People in Ag

BOZEMAN – The Montana State University Range Management Club is selling wild fir trees to the public for the holidays. The tree sale is the club’s annual fundraiser and helps the club pay for travel to national competitions.

Club members harvest local fir trees from private, native rangelands in Gallatin County. They range in height from 2 feet to 12 feet, and the cost of the trees varies from $10 to $60, depending on size. Trees can be picked up at the MSU Miller Livestock Pavilion, 2730 W. Garfield St. in Bozeman, on Sunday, Dec. 3, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.; on Monday, Dec. 4, through Friday, Dec. 8, from 4 to 6 p.m.; and on Saturday, Dec. 9, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Club members can deliver trees for on-campus orders only. Customers can request desired tree qualities and sizes at, or by calling 406-994-7953.

The club will use proceeds from tree sales to attend the annual International Society for Range Management Convention in Reno, Nevada, this spring. Last year at the convention, club members won fifth place in the Undergraduate Range Management exam competition and eighth place in the Range Plant Identification Test. Senior Noah Davis, from Ventura, California, earned second place in the competition’s individual combined scores for both the Undergraduate Range Management Exam and Plant identification contest.

The MSU Range Management Club includes 27 student members from several majors within the Department of Animal and Range Sciences in the College of Agriculture and is for students interested in principles of range management and range ecosystems. Club functions include sponsoring student study sessions and travel to participate in the Undergraduate Range Management Exam, Range Plant Identification Exam and the Extemporaneous Speaking Contest at the Society for Range Management Annual Conference. Additionally, the club supports guest speakers, field trips and social functions.
