Will you please volunteer as a tree ambassador for your street or block? We still have over 50 ash trees to save!

Let’s try to tackle this in a way that doesn’t seem so overwhelming. If enough households on the block make small donations, the trees can be saved!

We only have 2 more weeks to collect donations!

Here is a breakdown of trees by street:
Kolmar - 3 paid for - 3 remaining
Kilbourn - 3 paid for - 6 remaining
Kenneth - 1 Palmer tree paid for - 2 remaining
Kostner - 2 paid for - 2 remaining
Kildare - 7 paid for - 4 remaining - yay for Kildare!
Lowell - 1 paid for - 3 remaining
Tripp - 1 paid for - 6 remaining
Keeler - 9 paid for - 4 remaining - yay for Keeler!

Karlov- 3 trees not covered
Keystone - 6 trees not covered
Carmen - 2 Palmer trees not covered
Argyle - 3 Palmer trees not covered
Argyle - 3 paid for - 6 remaining
Ainslie - 2 trees not covered

Call or email me if you can help.
[email protected] / 773-852-3470

If enough people donate $10-$15 we can get the trees through this cycle. We’re hopeful that the city will resume treatment in the future.

It was hot. It was weedy. The corners were looking seedy….

Thanks to all who came to help clean out the long-overdue-for-a-trim Lawrence gardens on the north side of the street this morning! We finished four of the eight beds on Kostner and Lowell. Kildare and Kenneth next up!

Big appreciation for Jenny Llakmani, Julie Newfeld and Greg Pranski, Jim Kelley and son, Liam (tree trimmers), Belinda O'Kelly and her partner in weeding Sean, Debbie Montgomery and Lisa Haufschild. (Everyone was working so hard we missed the opportunity to get pix of all.) #streetscapeimprovers
