ReTree Nebraska is a 10-year cooperative initiative to raise public awareness of the value of trees, reverse the decline of Nebraska's community tree resource and improve the diversity and sustainability of trees in communities across the state for generations to come.
The effort is sponsored by the Nebraska Forest Service, Nebraska Statewide Arboretum, University of Nebraska Rural Initiative, UNL Extension, UNL Department of Agronomy & Horticulture and the UNL Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources.

An invasive pest called emerald ash borer (EAB) has the very real potential to kill most of the state’s ash trees, resulting in a potential loss of 25 percent, or more, of the existing community forest resource in many communities.
If you see this insect anywhere in Nebraska, please report it to the Nebraska Forest Service!
