Neighborhoods’ Efforts to Fight the Emerald Ash Borer Appear in the Journal Gazette

October 23, 2011

The efforts of Historic Southwood Park and other neighborhood associations like West Rudisill and Wildwood Park were chronicled in today’s Sunday Journal Gazette home section in an article by Rosa Salter Rodriguez.

Here’s a link: Shady lanes no more | FortWayne.com – Fort Wayne IN.

We’re glad to see that our Association’s fight against the Emerald Ash Borer is being noticed in the wider community. We hope folks in other neighborhoods will visit our website, read what we have done, borrow what they like, and improve on our efforts.

I would like to give a tip of the hat to folks in our association who made our efforts possible:

  • Pat Thomson has been involved in every step of the process and raised awareness of the issue.
  • Kasey Krouse graded our ash street trees.
  • Pat and Cheryl McCarthy treated the trees and toted the water needed for each application.
  • City Arborist Chad Tinkel provided the ash inventory for us to work from.
  • Folks like Jo Burkhardt contributed to our EAB treatment funds, as did anybody who made purchases at out plant sale fundraiser.
  • Thanks to everyone who voted and created consensus to divert funds from Dirt Day to ongoing EAB treatment.
