Limited EAB Management Program to Continue

EAB Program
with a diverse set of over 40 different tree species in a timespan of a little less than three and one-half years.

The nearly $1.7 million program, which was funded by cash reserves generated through operating efficiencies and rising sales tax receipts generated by local businesses, was completed 12% under budget. Your Board and staff's dedication and commitment to this program, coupled with your personal partnership, made this program the tremendous success that it was.

While the program is essentially complete at this point, a limited plan focused on preserving the less than 300 treated parkway ash trees that remain and replacing new parkway trees that have died over the past year or so will go into effect over the next 2-3 months.

Generally speaking, trees that have been treated by the Village for EAB will continue to be treated moving forward. At the same time, new plantings that have not survived the transition from the nursery to the parkway will be replaced this spring. (These non-viable trees were identified last September as part of a tree inventory conducted by the Village's consulting arborist, Graf Tree Care, Inc.)
