IDNR State Forest Nursery to Close at the end of 2015!
As this transition occurs there are several options to purchase bare root seedlings from within Iowa and from regional nurseries. Be prepared to pay 30 - 40 cents more per seedling and remember to factor in shipping. Nurseries often run out of seedlings so call around for the best price and availability. Combine orders with friends and neighbors to get volume discounts. Here is a list of local and regional nurseries that have stock available. This is not a complete list and there might be other nurseries that we do not know about so ask your local District Forester!

Treatment for Emerald Ash Borer
1. The window for the Effective treatment of Ash for EAB has closed for the 2014 growing season. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON TREATMENTS this late in the season. We have reached enough growing degree days for Peak EAB emergence to occur. Commerical treatements take 1-4 weeks to be effective and DIY treatments take 4-8 weeks so they will miss the peak emergence completely. Treatments target adults feeding on ash leaves for 3 weeks before they lay their eggs. Treatment effectiveness is greatly reduced by end of June / July. Treatments do not kill a substaintal number of larva once they are actively feeding in the cambial zone as most of the chemical is found in the xylem portion of the tree. For more information related to treatments see pages 5-9 of the newly released info June 2014 publication
