Mark Vitosh – District Forester, Iowa DNR:  Always a popular speaker and greatly in demand, Mark will discuss which trees to avoid planting in the landscape - due to insect, disease, or overuse/invasiveness - and introduce you to some native alternatives. Mark will also answer questions involving the ever-changing disease and insect threats to our urban trees.  There is no charge for this seminar, and it is open to the public.

This seminar will be held at the Johnson County Extension Office at the Johnson County Fairgrounds. The address is 3109 Old Hwy 218 South, Iowa City.
