Urban Foresty films and Emerald Ash Borer response


On Saturday April 25, Noon–3pm Fort Atkinson Club, 211 S. Water St. East  Heart of the City, Fort Atkinson Garden Club, UW-Extension, and Jefferson Co. Master Gardeners invite you to attend a

EMERALD ASH BORER WORKSHOP- Growing our Urban Forest after Emerald Ash Borer     This tiny beetle is killing our ash trees. Healthy ash trees can be treated to prevent EAB infestation, but over 800 ash trees lining Fort Atkinson’s streets,and hundreds more on private property,will be cut down due to Emerald Ash Borer. Do you have an ash tree? Do you have a plan?     For more info or to RSVP (helpful but not required) call 920-568-8850

This follows a series of films shown over the past 3 months focusing on urban forestry.  Healthy trees in cities increase property values and provide shade, beauty, and habitat. However, nearly a quarter of Fort Atkinson’s street trees are threatened by the recently arrived Emerald Ash Borer. To encourage a community-wide response to protect the urban forest on public and private property, Heart of the City presented this free film series and are partnering to present this workshop in response to the threat of Emerald Ash Borer.
