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?
Check with your local agricultural extension service office.
