The Board for Recreation, Arts and Cultural Activities has a subcommittee known as the Tree Committee. The Tree Committee was formed in 2011 in an effort to bring like-minded volunteers together to create and facilitate a plan for development, conservation, and care of Xenia’s urban forest resources and to promote and raise awareness about the importance of trees in our community.
Goals for the group include the following:
The Tree Committee is supported by the OSU Extension Greene County and the Greene Soil and Water Conservation District, as well as area residents with a vested interest and extensive knowledge of trees.
Have you seen an Emerald Ash Borer around your property or on your Ash Tree(s)? If so, then you’ll need to read the material (PDF) provided by the Ohio State University Extension and the U.S. Department of Agriculture pamphlet. Also, a presentation (PDF) was given to Xenia City Council on July 26, 2012, on the effects of the Emerald Ash Borer.
