Tree planting demonstration planned Oct. 9 in Hays



The Kansas State University Agricultural Research Center at Hays will host a tree planting demonstration Oct. 9 at 6:30 p.m.

The event, to be held at the research center located at 1232 240th Ave. in Hays, will highlight the Tree-Line Planting program, which focuses on trees recommended for growing in utility line areas. Ten varieties of crab apple trees will be planted during the demonstration.

"Many large trees have succumbed to unsightly pruning or removal because of branch interference into the lines."

K-State Research and Extension Horticulture Agent Holly Dickman, and Kansas Forestry Service Forester Jim Strine will show proper tree planting techniques.

Some of the small-size trees recommended by the Tree-Line Program are also included in the Hays Tree Rebate Program, Becker said. This program promotes planting of approved tree varieties in the community and provides a $50 rebate for up to two trees per year for any property owner within the city of Hays (see
