Dutch Elm Disease

Dutch Elm Disease (DED) affects all types of elms and is caused by a fungus that clogs the elm tree's water conducting system. The fungus is primarily spread from one elm tree to another by elm bark beetles. These beetles are active during the growing season.

Frost-Sensitive Plants

Plant labels often have this warning “plant after all danger of frost has passed”. Each May we try to determine when that last spring frost will fall. It is often a gamble to know when those frost sensitive plants can go out. Get some great tips on when and how to plant your spring plants.

Shelterbelt Best Practices

Traditionally, shelterbelts were multiple straight rows of trees lining a driveway or bordering farm fields. Ecobuffers, established using different planting configurations, bring additional benefits for environmental conservation. Thinking of starting a shelterbelt? Start here.

Healthy Farmers = Healthy Farms

If there was ever a time to lean on each other, it's now. Even if we can’t be close physically, we need to stay close emotionally. So while you’re staying in, stay in touch with each other, and reach out if you need support.
