NEMF Meeting – Guided Tour

Date: Thursday, August 15, 2019

Time: 12:00pm – 2:00pm

Title: Baumanii, Bicolor & Biloba – Guided Arboreal Walking Tour

Speaker: Jeff Brink, Sr. City Forester of the Chicago Dept. of Transportation

Summary: Visual uniformity, biological diversity and ecological stability! Let’s review. Numerous genera were utilized the beautiful community of Pilsen, a neighborhood of rich cultural heritage located southwest of Chicago’s downtown. Though ongoing tree planting continues, 17 years have passed since the original tree planting initiative took place. Over the years, many trees have grown beyond expectation in part due to greater soil volumes and simple care from adjoining property owners.

Jeff Brink will be guiding this arboreal walking tour. Streetscape construction, tree preservation, and many genera in full leaf will be reviewed.
