Shade Tree Commission

Every few years, the Shade Tree Commission injects a small amount of “Triage” into the base of the Ash Trees to protect the City’s remaining Ash trees from the Emerald Ash Borer.

Brian Eitnear, Mark Newman, Josh Mast and Rob Cereghin were performing the injections. Also helping the Tree Commission this year were Ann Melton, Roger Herrett and Jen English.

Thank you to Mark and Carlton, two members of the Montpelier Shade Tree Commission, who trained our new members and helped the City of Defiance get this program started several years ago.
