New forestry lab
to expand research
Tree research in Nebraska will "greatly expand" as a result
of UNL's new $680,000 Forestry Sciences Laboratory,
according to U.S. Sen. Carl T. Curtis, who spoke at the
laboratory's opening Friday.
Curtis, the ranking minority member on the Agriculture
Committee and the forestry subcommittee, said trees are
important because they help reduce topsoil losses, while
providing food and shelter for farm animals.
"Food vitality is important to people across the world. This
means there's a need to modify the ravages caused by the
natural elements to protect agricultural products," he said.
James Zumberge, UNL chancellor, said planting trees in
appropriate places can help piotect watersheds from wind
"In Nebraska we bring in trees to enhance agricultural
production," he said.
Congressman Charles Thone, a member of the forestry
subcommittee, said trees absorb carbon dioxide and help
control noise pollution.
The : no more appropriate place in the world than
Nebraska to establish a forestry laboratory, he said.
"Nebraska is the planter state and home of Arbor Day," he
Curtis said persons living in Nebraska appreciate trees more

He said the Nebraska National Forest is the only manmade
forest in North America.
John McGuire, chief of Nebraska's Forest Service, said
UNL's research will concentrate on studying tree diseases in
Nebraska and on developing better knowledge on ways trees
can be used to increase agricultural production.
"Nebraska's climate can be severe to some trees. Unfamiliar
diseases, insects and soils lacking the necessary moisture or
nutrients are reasons why some trees are unsuccessfully
planted here," he said.
McGuire said the new laboratory will help determine what
trees can survive in the state's climate.
The laboratory consists of two buildings. The main building
has 10 offices, four specialized laboratories and a library
