A Jamestown man’s tree is serving as the basis for an effort to add biodiversity to the North Dakota landscape.
Seeds gathered from the only subalpine fir in North Dakota are being planted in the greenhouses of North Dakota State University with hopes of learning if the species can become a regular part of the state’s landscape.
North Dakota has a new champion tree.
State Forester Larry Kotchman says a silver maple owned by Robert Penner in Fargo has replaced the former champion tree located at a Fargo cemetery. Kotchman says the cemetery maple lost several large branches last year and is in failing health.
A working group of federal, state and local officials concerned with the emerald ash borer and its possible spread into North Dakota met in Jamestown Thursday. The group is in the process of developing a response plan if the insect’s migration continues and impacts trees in the state.
“We’re really looking at when not, if,” said David Nelson, state entomologist. “It is hard to tell when, if we’re lucky it could be years.”
As the emerald ash borer threat lingers in Minnesota, one program aims to educate volunteers to take action first by becoming an early warning system.
The First Detector Program was started by the National Plant Diagnostic Network in conjunction with the Animal Plant and Health Inspection Service.
