Stove PrPrairie Beetle Workshop

We had a huge turnout for the Stove Prairie Beeltle Workshop and Tour on Saturday. Thanks for all who took the time to attend. Please consider becoming a Tree Farmer so we can continue to provide practical information and host informative workshops like this. Contact Mike Hughes Michael.Hughes@colostate.edu for details.

It was suggested that the next workshop emphasize ways in which landowners can partner to share costs and accomplish more than they could individually. We're working on it. Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, more information on some of the methods used to treat infested wood will be published in these email alerts soon.
