Seventy New Trees Planted in Elmhurst Parks in Spring 2016

If you see new trees in your parks, it is all part of the Spring Tree Planting project.  Every year the Park District plants new trees, some for general landscape needs and others to replace those trees removed due to disease or invasive species, such as emerald ash borer. Operating in teams of 3-5 employees, the Parks Division worked hard over the winter months to remove over 300 ash trees due to emerald ash borer this year, in anticipation of replacing many of those trees this spring.
