Tree Care Program

treewkshppicTrees 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 Wednesday, April 18th from 5:30-7pm at the Clay County Activities Building in Clay Center, Nicole Stoner will teach us what to do with our trees. Nicole Stoner is a Horticulture Educator from Nebraska Extension in Gage County. This tree program is only $5.00 and will cover light refreshments and your educational materials. Nicole will cover watering, insect and disease problems, general care, and planting of trees. Please pre-register by April 13th with Nebraska Extension in Clay County. You can pre-register by calling 402-762-3644 or by emailing dpeshek2@unl.edu.
