The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) damage was discovered in Iowa City in 2016, and tree loss from EAB is expected to increase in the area over the next 5 to 8 years. What species of trees are good replacements for Ash trees? How will increasing the diversity among our tree species help avoid this problem in the future? Mark Vitosh, Iowa DNR District Forester, leads this discussion and gives suggestions for promoting good health and growth of newly planted trees.

This event is part of the 2017 Adult Summer Reading Program.
