Quick comment: In the Viewpoints “It’s soccer vs. trees at Lindberg Park” article from Oct. 6, the author discusses the cost to inoculate 15 ash trees at total cost of $7,500 per year within the park. That is $500 a tree. In working with private certified arborists, I would recommend getting multiple quotes for a particular tree project.
Also, it’s important to know what kind of treatment would be applied and how often it needs to be applied. For information regarding ash trees, Oak Parkers can visit www.emeraldashborer.info.
