Learn the ins and outs of tree planting

Have you ever wondered when the best time to plant a tree is? Or how to properly prune a tree, but didn’t know who to ask? Frontier Extension District and Lyndon Library will host a public meeting on tree planting and maintenance at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 17, 2019, at the library.

The presentation will cover when to plant trees and selecting trees from the nursery. Selection is all about planting the right tree in the right place. With the tough growing conditions that Kansas offers, selecting the right tree is often one of our biggest challenges.

Also covered will be mulching and its purpose, and the importance of pruning and how and when to do it.

The meeting will be at the Lyndon Library, 127 E. Sixth St., Lyndon, Kan. For more information, contact Ryan Schaub, Frontier Extension horticulture agent, at 785-448-6826 or email [email protected].
