EAB: Williamson Street Reconstruction

6 month report continued…

This may seem an unlikely place for EAB e/o, but this street reconstruction, the associated loss of trees combined with the high percentage of city owned ash trees within the reconstruction boundaries created a localized awareness for the potential magnitude of tree loss to our community. WABAs streets are due for reconstruction in 2015. The challenge in efforts like this one is volunteers’ endurance and vigilance where city, contractors, residents and businesses alike need reminding about the impending tree loss.  Volunteers need back up support when advocating for other tree varieties that can easily be destroyed in the construction process.
