Freeman Tree City hosting workshop with Ball March 17

The Freeman Tree City Committee and the Freeman Prairie Arboretum are sponsoring a free workshop led by John Ball Thursday evening, March 17 at the Prairie Arboretum Interpretive Center in Freeman starting at 7 p.m.

Ball, who is a South Dakota State University Extension Forestry Specialist, will speak about replanting options for ash trees lost to disease.

�With the looming threat of emerald ash borer and thousand cankers disease among other exotic pests, it�s time to rethink what we plant in the landscape,� Ball said. �This session will cover some of the best new trees and shrubs that are adapted to our climate and soils.�

Following his presentation, Ball will be available for a question and answer session on trees.

Anyone is welcome to attend; no advance registration is required.
