  1. Assuming the tree is not dead, cutting down all “diseased” trees suffering from “ash borer” wondering if that is the long-term solution really, or is it just a quick way of dealing with it?

  2. Also, I talked with the office head about any progressions that might come. My recommendation is that every mortgage holder that loses a turnpike tree to emerald powder borers ought to call Customer Service (630-256-INFO or 4636) to go on record as needing a substitution tree once their tree in the expressway has been chopped around the city. They can exploit the 50/50 tree substitution program in the event that they like. Occupants ought not plant their own particular trees in the turnpike.
