Free Tree Walk This Weekend in Bucktown

In the book Happiness Sold Separately, its main character develops an unusual attachment to a tree on her front lawn, among other plot lines.

Though not emotionally attached to a particular tree, I do happen to notice when trees in the area look sick, like this one, pictured.

Janet is a member of the Bucktown Community Organization, and conducts self guided trees walks like one taking place this weekend. Following is a cut, and pasted description of the tour. Though it's too late to include this information in Monday's issue of the Pipeline eNewsletter, I'm going to post it here, and then see if Janet can identify what is ailing this tree, spotted in West Bucktown near Diego School.

As a follow up to the 2009 Bucktown Self-Guided Tree Tour made available during this year’s garden walk, Bucktown Community Organization member, Naturalist and Tree Keeper –Janet Mrowka will lead the second in a series of year round guided tree walks.

  1. Update- Burls are on this tree. In general they are not too harmful, and add character...
