CUT TREES

Does anyone know why there are so many mature trees being cut down in the area? I've been hearing a lot about gypsy moths in the news, could this be the reason?

  • Bob Stanek Lives across from Peck School, works at Argonne

    Don't know for sure, but over the past several years, Ash trees were being all cut down because of the Emerald Ash Borer beetle. A couple years ago hundreds were cut down in Marquette Park, and along Midway Plaisance near University of Chicago, they were all dead already. If you look at the bark, you should see they are all the same.

  • GG , The tree across from me was cut down. (Also provided a lot of shade was cut down ) My neighbor asked why ? And was told the Mayor is cutting down any tree that is more them one hundred years old. This one was one hundred and eight.. Does this make sense ?
