Petrifying Springs Park Ash Tree Removal Photo Gallery

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Kenosha County's Petrifying Springs Park, located in the Village of Somers, is a most beloved and popular park with Somers residents.  The park is closed during the cutting and removal of trees infected with the emerald ash borer.  It is expected the park will reopen within the next 30 days.  The emerald ash borer is an invasive, wood boring beetle that kills ash trees by eating tissue under the bark.  It is estimated that 2,800 trees will be removed from Pets this winter.  Although the park will look different this spring, many trees have been planted in the past three years in preparation for the removal project and more plantings are scheduled. The project is managed by Koerner Forest Products of Oshkosh.  After the logging is completed at Petrifying Springs Park, the ash tree removal project will move to Brighton Dale Park and Fox River Park.

 

 All of us look forward to visiting our favorite park soon!
