Our program was presented by Lori Grueber, Community Outreach Forester with the Lincoln Parks and Recreation Department. Among the topics presented was a description of the properties of trees that city forestry personnel evaluate compared to those sought by wood turners. She listed the best woods for turning as defined by WOOD Magazine. Additional comments were made regarding tree biology and structure before talking at length about the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) and steps being taken by The City to limit its impact locally and regionally through quarantines. She discussed the chemical being used for best results, its application technique, and cost—for both the chemical and its injection.
