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.
