South Dakota State University specialists will offer information on dealing with flooded shrubs and trees at a meeting in North Sioux City.
The event takes place in the Dakota Valley High School auditorium at 1150 Northshore Drive, North Sioux City, from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 3.
Landscape trees and shrubs have been inundated with floodwater from the Missouri river and from rising water tables. SDSU Extension Forestry Specialist John Ball will address the factors that play a role in both the short-term and long- term health of trees in city parks and on private property.
The North Sioux City city office, Superintendent Al Leber of the Dakota Valley School District, and the SDSU Cooperative Extension Service are working together to make the event possible.
To get there, take Interstate Highway 29 south to Exit 4 (the McCook Lake exit). Turn right (west) and follow the road for approximately one mile. The high school will be on the right (north) side of the road. The auditorium is just inside the main entrance.
