Wrap Up: Arbor Day Celebration in Riverside Park

We had a beautiful and fun filled morning planting trees in the heart of Chagrin Falls to celebrate Arbor Day.

Volunteers planted two staggered rows of white flowering dogwood saplings all along the house line of Riverside Park. It should be beautiful when they mature.

The saplings were donated by First Energy, who also handed out free saplings to residents to plant in their yard. Our service department and shade tree commissioners were also on hand, and helped plant with lots of residents, young and old.

If you have questions about your own trees, feel free to contact the shade tree commission.  They are a wealth of knowledge, and great people as well.

Please Check Your Hemlock Trees For Woolly Adelgid Infestation

Holden Arboretum has reported Hemlock Woolly Adelgids are now in our area. This is an invasive pest that is killing hemlock trees. It is important for everyone to check their hemlocks as many in our area are on private property.

The hemlock woolly adelgid is tiny, less than 1/16 inch long, and varies from dark reddish brown to purple black in color.  As it matures, it produces a covering of wool-like wax filaments to protect itself and its eggs from natural enemies and prevent them from drying out.  This “wool” is most conspicuous when the adelgid is mature and laying eggs.  Ovisacs can be readily observed from late fall to early summer on the underside of the outermost branch tips of hemlock trees.

The brochure from the US Department of Agriculture can be downloaded below.  It describes what to look for on your hemlocks. If you find you have an infestation, report it to:

Report By Phone:  ODNR 877-247-8733  or  ODA 614-728-6400
