ISU Extension Offers Windbreaks Program

ISU Extension and Outreach in Clay and Dickinson Counties is holding an informational meeting on windbreaks at the Extension Office at 110 West 4th Street on Thursday, February 4 from 1-3 pm.   
 
Dr. Jesse Randall, Iowa State University Extension Forester, will be conducting the meeting.  He will be educating landowners on the value of windbreaks, how to design and select trees for a new windbreak, how to plant and maintain trees and what to look for in old windbreaks in terms of disease and insects. He will demonstrate ISU Forestry’s new online windbreak program that takes a lot of the guess work out of new windbreaks. Attendees are encouraged to bring photos of their existing windbreak and Jesse will answer questions as time allows. 
 
The meeting is free and open to the public.  For more information and to pre-register, which is highly recommended as space is limited, contact Sarah Dirks, ISU Extension and Outreach Clay County at 712-262-2264 or sdirks@iastate.edu.
