Presentation: Dealing with the Loss of Ash Trees

  • March 28, 2017
  • 7:30 PM
  • UCC Church, Main Street Honeoye NY

Jim Engel, owner of White Oak Nursery on Kipp Road in Gorham, will present a program on, "Diversifying the Forest Plant Community after the Loss of Ash".

The death of ash trees across NYS from Emerald Ash Borer will significantly alter our forest composition and result in significant ecological disturbance.

- What species will fill the void left by the death of ash? Will it be an invasive plant or a desirable native species?

-  Collecting and planting seed of native trees, shrubs and forbs is one way to shape the composition of the future forest.

- Jim has been propagating and growing over 80 species of native shade trees and native flowering shrubs since 1995, and grows the majority of species that are native to the northeastern United States. His technique is to use tree seed to diversify and establish ash seedlings.

- Light refreshments will be available...
