Park Board appreciates tree support

To the Editor:

The Sheboygan Falls Park Board would like to thank Jack Leibham, of Boy Scout Troop 885 and all the volunteers who helped plant 205 trees as part of this year’s Sheboygan Falls Community Tree Planting Program.

This Community Tree Planting Program was developed by the Sheboygan Falls Park Board as a way to create a diversified inventory of trees to replace the ash trees we will soon be losing to the Emerald Ash Borer.

Currently, almost 50 percent of the trees in Sheboygan Falls parks are ash trees and will be dead in 3 to 5 years.

Jack made this year’s tree planting part of his Eagle Scout Community Project. Jack organized a team of volunteers and scheduled the work, picked up the trees and separated them by variety that was to planted at various parks in the city.

This group installed protective tubes around each tree and placed mulch at the base of each tree.

It was a large undertaking, that ran very smoothly due to Jack’s good planning and hard-working volunteers.

Wet, rainy conditions added some challenges to this task, but the positive attitude helped make it a success.

The Park Board would also like to thank American Transmission Company, which supplied the grant to cover the cost of the Community Tree Planting program this year.
