Sadly, Dutch elm disease (DED), a fungal disease with no known cure, claimed its first two casualties of the year in Curtis Park at the corner of 26th Street and Marshall Way in late April.
Our first Saturday morning "walkabout" for SacTree's Save The Elms Program (STEP) with certified arborist Dan Pskowski went great! Our team of STEP Citizen Scientists learned a lot about American and English elm trees, identifying the symptoms of Dutch elm disease (DED), and using Greenprint Maps to report the elm trees with symptoms of the disease. We even discovered an elm showing symptoms of DED around Curtis Park!
In case you hadn’t noticed, March and April were busy, tree-filled months in Rancho Cordova!
