Tree nursery being planted

Planting for the future!

To help replace the trees lost to Emerald Ash Borer, Cedar Falls Public Works put in a tree nursery located next to their building. Aided by volunteers, the project includes a rainwater irrigation system and a wide variety of  tree species. The trees grow in fabric bags with air pots, making it easy to transport them when needed. 

The trees will be used in public parks, golf courses and public right of ways. This new cost-effective system is an efficient way to help both city staff and our community!
