Trees for use close to lake shore

Asked September 12, 2018, 6:55 PM EDT

Ash borer is starting to appear in the SW Minn. area. We have a number of ash trees growing close to the lake shore. Is there a tree that would grow well in a moist sandy soil ?

Here is a list from Penn State of trees and shrubs. Be aware of your hardiness zone. We are zone 4 or lower in Minnesota. https://extension.psu.edu/trees-shrubs-and-groundcovers-tolerant-of-wet-sitesThere also is a link on caring for your lakeshore which should be helpful to you.http://www.shorelandmanagement.org/quick/ns.html
