Chikaming Township Hall, October 19, 2017

downloadWith the help of grants through The Pokagon Fund and the Michigan Department of Transportation, the New Buffalo City Council is allowing conditions that encourages the spread of Oak Wilt Disease.  To rush through sidewalks on side streets, they authorized the destruction of the root systems of mature oak trees during hot dry weather leaving these trees compromised and vulnerable to disease.

Hopefully, Mayor O’Donnell and Council members Ennis, Robertson, Knoll, and Spirito will attend the free presentation in Chikaming Township to discover the need for responsible leadership in preserving the natural beauty of our large shade trees. Although City Council member Robertson can claim their decision to destruct mature oak trees on city property is legal, it is morally wrong.  

Attend the Free Presentation on October 19, 2017
