Browning and Dying Trees in the Pinery

Attention High Prairie Farms and Timbers residents:

Attached is important information regarding browning and damaged trees in our neighborhood. The sudden cold snap last fall has caused extensive damage to the areas pine trees and a few of the most damaged trees may not survive.

Please also be aware that April and May is the best time of year for preventative spraying of pine trees to help deter the most common insect pests (Ips, pine beetle, etc.) common to our area. The District recommends preventative spraying of all high-value landscaping trees within the District. Beside the weather related damage discussed above, drought and insect damage are the single greatest threats to our community forest.
