Question:
I just read the info page on the distress that the Lombardy Poplars have had in Cook County over the years from "canker" disease and "poplar borers". This article was written in 1964. Is there still a problem with this disease and this insect? Is the prognosis for growing a poplar still bleak in Cook County?

Dear Clara,

Check with your local agricultural extension service office.

Sincerely,
Anthony R. Brach, Ph.D.
