The village of Schaumburg has announced its ongoing participation in the Legacy Tree Project, a partnership with Valent Professional Products that offers homeowners help in protecting ash trees from the emerald ash borer.
With the 2013 window for effective protection measures is closing rapidly, residents are encouraged to evaluate ash trees for structural soundness and general health and sort them into those suitable for long-term treatment and those which should be removed immediately. The only ash trees that can be ignored in a personal management plan are those in natural areas which, on falling, will not threaten people or property.
Schaumburg offers residents an opportunity to attain "bulk pricing" on treatment of their private trees. For more information, go to ci.schaumburg.il/us/GreCorn/landscape/Pages/LegacyTreeProject.aspx.
