A big thank you to Bartlett Tree Experts for their awesome generosity!
Bartlett Tree Experts donated time, labor and treatments to save three ash trees in Ellwood Park. The trees will be treated multiple times to prevent any infestation. These trees live on a street that currently does not have any other trees excepts for these three ash trees. Although our organization is working to increase the tree canopy in this neighborhood, we also want to save any existing healthy trees. The Emerald Ash Borer is making that goal difficult and the city is estimated to lose approximately 5,000 ash street trees and a total of 212,000 ash trees in the next 5 years.
