Riverside Park Conservancy: Dutch Elm Disease Inoculation

Arborists at Work

Our Riverside Park Conservancy’s mission is to restore, maintain, and improve Riverside Park. As part of a generous grant from Greenacre Foundation, The Conservancy is undertaking inoculation of all American Elm trees and the elm varieties.

Dutch Elm Disease is an incurable scourge that quickly kills the elm tree. The disease cannot be cured, but occasionally a tree can be saved if an infected limb is removed before the trunk becomes diseased. If not, the entire tree must be removed. Leaving an infected tree in place means the disease could spread to nearby trees.

Please support the Riverside Park Conservancy! Your donations help them restore and maintain our beautiful park.
