Rhodes Research and Demonstration Farm
Trees are becoming an increasingly important component of the Iowa landscape. For tree plantings to be more common in Iowa, two major problems related to establishment must be overcome: (1) intense weed competition and (2) lack of market or nonmarket values for several years for newly planted trees. To develop information that addresses these problems, a research project was initiated during the spring of 1998 at the Rhodes Research Farm.
