It seems that there has been a large number of trees, at least in my neck of the woods (South side) that have been cut down this year. All of them very large trees.

Why is this? I can't believe we don't want large trees. These were all parkway trees and the city was hiring contractors, or that is my thoughts.

I remember reading about emerald ash borer problems.

I don't get why our village officials do not keep our village website current with information about what is going on in our village.

I just checked our village's site and not surprised that there is no mention on there as I have seen others ask about this on the facebook Forest Park Townhall page (their tree had a big red x on it). There was much discussion.

Perhaps an email to John Doss? I bet he knows.

Don't think we lost any trees on the 1500 blk Marengo, of which I'm aware, actually believe they did a really good job on selectively trimming. The trimmers were up in the trees on ropes, cutting out dead branches, getting rid of the suckers, opening the trees up to light. I have been very vocal, in the past, when the Village guys took their saws to the "Crimson King" maple my husband and I planted in the parkway more than 40yrs ago. Have also complained about dangerous deadwood on forum in the past, it was after a heavy storm that did a lot of damage. Hiring a professional tree service was an excellent choice. There was a lady driving a convertible happily picking up firewood behind them.

River Forest cut down a ton of trees too, all marked with the red X. They were infested with the Emerald Ash Borer.
