Keeping trees healthy requires diligence, both before and after they have been planted. Iowa State University Extension and Outreach has revised a publication that provides current recommendations for tree selection, planting and post-planting care.
The 60th Annual Iowa State University Shade Tree Short Course, Glass is Half Full: A Call for Optimism, will be Feb. 23 - 25, 2016 at the Scheman Building at Iowa State University in Ames.
The importance of planning when selecting trees is explained in Guidelines for Selecting Trees (RG 702), an Iowa State University Extension and Outreach publication.
As thousand canker disease and emerald ash borers edge their way toward Iowa trees and woodlands, organizers of the 55th Annual Iowa State University Shade Tree Short Course are encouraging those interested in trees to “Expand Your Plant Palette.”
