Totally Trees Webinars Set

Iowa State University Extension and Outreach Wright County is offering garden webinars for the general public.  Trees are one of the most valuable components of home landscapes.Because weather patterns over the past couple of years have taken a toll on landscape trees, and with the Emerald Ash Borer recently found in adjacent counties, Wright County ISU Extension is offering these educational seminars at no charge to the public.
Dates, presenters, and topics for these webinars are: Thurs., August 21-Donald Lewis & Mark Shour, ISU Extension Entomologists, will speak on "Tree Pests: Emerald Ash Borer and Beyond", with a focus on recent pests of trees such as the Emerald Ash Borer and the impact of these pests on the Iowa landscape.
Mon., September 29-Jeff Iles, Iowa State Univeristy Department of Horticulture, Chair and Extension Nursery and Landscape Specialist, will speak on "Replacing Ash Trees: Good Alternatives for Iowa", providing ideas of other species of trees to consider planting in the home landscape.
Both sessions are open to all interested gardeners; sessions will be held from 6:30-8:30 pm at the Wrtight County ISU Extension Office, 210 1st SW, Clarion, IA.   Please call 515-532-3453 to register or for more information on these webinars.
