#53: Roadside Plantings

A highway stretches off into a flat landscape with a blue sky and pasture/farmland on either side.

Ron Poe from the Nebraska Department of Transportation joins us to talk about NDOT's goals for creating a "Nebraska" landscape along our state highways. He answers our questions about pollinator habitat, erosion control, tree planting, mowing practices and more.

A little light reading for those who are interested: NDOT's Vegetation Manual.
