Outdoor Tree ID Workshop on July 13th

The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) is a real threat to our ash trees.  A third of the Village's trees (park or right-of-way) are ash, not to mention the amount of private trees that are resident owned.  When EAB gets to Bellevue, ash tree owners will have some hard decisions to make.  As part of a grant from the WI DNR the Village is offering a FREE Tree ID workshop at the Brown County UW Extension.  Residents can go to the UW Extension Office and walk through their grounds to learn about trees that are appropriate replacements for ash trees.  The Tree ID workshop is lead by UW Extension Horticulturist, Vijai Pandian. 

Registration is required for this free event.  Registration deadline is Tuesday, July 5th.  You may register online HERE or by calling the Village offices at 468-5225.

The Tree ID workshop is Wednesday, July 13th from 6:00-7:30pm at the UW Extension Office (1150 Bellevue St.)

Classes are funded in part by an Urban Forestry Grant from the State of Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Forestry Program as authorized under S.23.097, Wisconsin Statutes and are made possible by a partnership with UW Extension.  Classes are open to residents and non-residents.
