The Village of Bellevue Awarded an Urban Forestry Grant for 2016

The Village of Bellevue is excited to be one of the 36 communities, groups and non-profits that will be receiving an Urban Forestry Grant in 2016 from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. Monies from the grant will be used to further EAB education, awareness, and preparedness, continue our Adopt-A-Tree program for treatment of ash trees in the Village right-of-way, and purchase
additional trees for current Village trees identified as needing removal or next to existing ash trees to start growing a next canopy to eventually replace the ash trees when they become infected with EAB.
