Osmond Tree Board to host tree workshop

The Osmond Tree Board will be hosting a tree care workshop at the Osmond Public Library Meeting Room on Friday, February 26, 2016 from 1 – 3:30 pm.  This workshop is open to the public with no registration necessary.

Pam Bergstrom, Forester for the Lower Elkhorn Natural Resources District (LENRD), and Steve Rasmussen, District Forester for the Nebraska Forest Service (NFS) will be discussing pruning, selecting trees for your sites, as well as disease and insect issues.  There will be time for a Question and Answer Session with the two foresters and the public is encouraged to bring in their questions, tree samples they have questions on, and photographs of trees they are worried about.

“The Osmond Tree Board has wanted to host a Tree Workshop for a while now and with spring right around the corner, this is a great time to have one with topics that concern most landowners, homeowners, and the public,” said, Pam Bergstrom, LENRD Forester.  "Nebraskans enjoy their yard and park trees.  With the benefits of trees including lowering heating and cooling costs, increase value of your land, and it has been proven that communities with a healthy urban forest have healthier citizens and even draws in new businesses and residents; it is really easy to enjoy trees.  This workshop is geared to helping homeowners/landowners with understanding how to care for their trees and informing prospective tree buyers what to think about buying.”

No registration is required.  Contact Pam Bergstrom at 402.371.7313, if you have any questions.
