WINDY HILLS TREE BOARD MINUTES
June 6, 2019
Present: Jim Ising, Erin Morris, Cheri Silvey-Slusher, Kate Greer
The April 11 minutes were approved
We still have a problem figuring out how much money we have in our account. We think it is about $2,000, but Kate is going to talk to Sandy about a questionable amount.
Kate’s Report: A resident called Kate with the news that she and her husband had cut down the tree on Indian Ridge that Steve Teaford reported to Kate. Carolyn Westfall examined it and declared it dangerous. Mayor Davis sent the resident a letter about her tree. The letter explained to her that the City would replace her tree. The resident is going to investigate what kind of tree she wants to plant and will get back to Kate.
Evaluation of Arbor Day: The Board was pleased with the event, especially that two of the fruit tree winners were children. Kate will deliver water bags to the five winners.
Unfinished Business: Cheri will remind Caroline that she still needs to evaluate the trees the City planted on Ambridge. Kate will remind Adam to prune the suckers on the trees.
Free Tree Offer in upcoming newsletter: The first 15 homeowners who call Cheri and take advantage of the offer will get a canopy tree planted. She will refer them to the list of approved trees in the Tree Board Ordinance on the City Web Site. They are to pick 3 choices. The Tree Board will try to get a financial deal with one of our three nurseries with whom we deal in the WHHAG program. The trees will be planted later in the Fall.
Next meeting date: September 5, at 7:00 p.m.
