“Plant Trees for a Brighter Minnesota,” is the theme of Arbor Month in May, the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) said. Arbor Day, April 26, marks the beginning of a month-long celebration of trees.
National Arbor Day is Friday, April 26 this year, and the Arbor Day Foundation is making it easy for anyone to celebrate the annual tree-planting holiday. Join the Foundation in April and receive 10 shade trees.
Now is the time to start pruning your fruit trees. Pruning your trees while they are in dormancy reduces the possibility of fire blight in crabapples, apples and pears, as well as minimizing canker diseases in cherries and plums.
Douglas Soil Water Conservation District (DSWCD) will host its annual Tree Open House on Wednesday, February 20, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the USDA Service Center (directly behind McDonald’s on Highway 29 North of Alexandria).
Joining the Arbor Day Foundation is an ideal way to get in the mood for spring planting. Anyone from Minnesota who joins the Foundation in February 2013 will receive 10 Colorado blue spruce trees to plant when the weather turns warm.
The Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) is using innovative research from the University of Minnesota and the U.S. Forest Service to help determine the next steps against emerald ash borer (EAB).
Now is the time of year when most property owners are considering pruning their trees. Removing unwanted branches improperly and at the wrong time of the year can stress and damage the tree. When and how should trees be trimmed?
In April and May, I get many calls from distressed homeowners concerned about trees and shrubs that did not fare well during the treacherous winter months. Many of these plants are suffering from cold damage such as sun scald, dieback, root injury and frost heaving. A few cultural practices now can help prevent such often irrecoverable damage from occurring.

Fall officially arrived on the calendar last Saturday but the trees and falling leaves have been signaling the change in seasons for some time now. The next few weeks should be prime time to take a leisurely drive, bike ride or stroll to take in the fall color.
