Mt. Vernon Tree-mendous Growth Workshop

November 7 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm

Thomas Commons (Hall-Perrine Room)
Cornell College Campus, Mt. Vernon, Iowa

Join Trees Forever Field Coordinator Gina Buelow to learn about the tree canopy in Mt. Vernon, Iowa and the importance of having a biodiverse and robust community of trees in urban areas.

The purpose of this program is to advocate for increasing tree canopy in Iowa through improved community forestry management practices. We will be examining the new 2022 Iowa DNR tree inventory, explore local tree ordinances, and discuss current and emerging threats to trees—including the notorious Emerald Ash Borer.

We will end the session by discussing ten ways to grow our urban tree canopy and cover grant opportunities available to plant trees in town to improve biodiversity and canopy cover.
