Tree Planting Events

As the emerald ash borer makes its way through our state, we all need to roll up our sleeves and start getting our hands dirty. In the coming years, an estimated 1 million trees will disppear from communities across the state. The Nebraska Forest Service, Nebraska Statewide Arboretum, and Nebraska Extension want you to join us in what will be a historic tree replanting effort!
