Community Environment

trees shade and so much more - fruti nd nut orchards, wild life habitat, energy conservation, windbreaks and soil erosion

From creating a sense of place to providing a home for wildlife, trees bring significant value to Nebraska homes and landscapes.

Trees can also block the wind, provide you with fruits and nuts, prevent soil erosion, filter noise and even provide a place to play.

Your Extension experts are here to answer all your questions about trees! From tree health to pruning, and from selecting the right tree for your property to how to plant it and get it off to a great start.
