The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) is a small, invasive pest whose larvae feast on the trunks of ash trees, causing their eventual decline and death. Like many other communities, this beetle has affected many trees throughout the Village of Deerfield. There are currently over 1,321 ash trees located on parkways and village-owned parcels across Deerfield. This past May, the Village began removing ash trees that have been deemed hazardous or confirmed with EAB. Homeowners have been notified that their tree(s) will be removed and have been offered a choice of replacement tree(s) based on parkway size and relation to other trees. Residents have been filling out forms, identifying their first, second and third choices for new tree species to replace the removed or soon-to-be removed ash tree(s). After the forms are returned to the Public Works department, they are time-stamped and passed along to the GIS department in order to geographically track the requests in MapOffice™. This provides village staff with a quick way to identify where new species will be planted and to ensure that there is minimal bunching of a specific type of tree.
