Trees are very valuable in our landscapes. They provide us with beauty, shade, oxygen, and better resale on our homes. These trees need our help to ensure they have healthy growth. When they have a disease or insect problem, it is up to us to manage those pests to help them live many years. On Tuesday, October 16th from 6-7:30pm at the 4-H building on the Nemaha County Fairgrounds in Auburn, Nicole Stoner will teach us what to do with our trees.
