I can use about 30 young screen trees and about 150 to 200 flower bushes like rose or other common garden plants. How do I minimize the cost?

Does the State offer live tree harvesting permits from Jackson State forest ? Or the Feds from Mendocino National Forest ?

Some state forestry departments run their own tree nurseries, and offer seedlings in bulk for little cost to property owners.
For 2017-2018, CAL FIRE has over 85,000 seedlings ready to plant. These seedlings include ponderosa pine, sugar pine and giant sequoia. These seedlings are from a range of elevations from across the tree mortality affected counties. Other seedlings may be available for pick up this winter, based on excess orders placed last year.
Please contact your local CAL FIRE Unit Forester, a Registered Professional Forester, or manager of LAMRC for the most recent information on seedling availability through private nurseries and/or the El Dorado Resource Conservation District.

Mendocino County Extension Office (good resource, they may know of another source in your county)

Order from one of the university forestry programs for your trees. One of the rose specialists might give you a price break on a large order, especially for out-of-patent varieties. I would expect bench graft roses to be really inexpensive.

(My favorite rose of all is Peace, and Chrysler Imperial is the best red, and those are both out of patent. There are some great roses that are out of patent and much less expensive)
