Ash trees program focus

“Alas, Poor Ash: Alternatives to Ash Trees in the Landscape” is the title of a program Saturday, April 22 at 10 a.m. It is sponsored by Sheboygan County Master Gardeners and will be held in room 5020 of the UW-Extension offices on the UW-Sheboygan campus.

The presenter is Carrie Hennessy, a landscape designer at Johnsons Nursery in Menominee Falls. Hennessy is a professional horticulturist who has worked at Olbrich Gardens, Payne Art Center & Gardens and the Better Homes & Gardens Test Garden.

Whether you have a new yard to design or a gap to fill in an existing landscape, a tree is one of the most important additions a homeowner can make to a landscape. It’s a sizable investment of money and the time it takes for a tree to take its rightful place.

As the mass removal of ash trees from our landscape — due to emerald ash borer — continues, many homeowners will be faced with the tricky decision of what will replace the ash.

But, even if you don’t have emerald ash borer, Hennessy will help you weigh the pros and cons of the many tree options that are available in nurseries.
