On Monday January 16, 2012, the City of West Chicago, Illinois in regular session assembled, authorized the Mayor, Michael Kwasman to approve Resolution No. 12-R-0008 authorizing a Professional Services Agreement with Emerald Tree Care, LLC for Annual Emerald Ash Borer Insecticidal Treatments for Fiscal years 2012-2017. Emerald Tree Care LLC was contracted in 2011 by the City of West Chicago to provide this same Emerald Ash Borer Treatment to parkway ash trees within the City of West Chicago. An updated Press release from the City of West Chicago on July 28, 2011, can be read in full at I encourage every City Forester, City Trustee, and or councilman in neighboring cities within Chicagoland to review the forward thinking going on in Cities like West Chicago, Roselle, and Downers Grove. They know that it is less expensive to treat their trees than to remove them. They will have large green belt areas of ash in their cities in the future as a result of their approach to Emerald Ash Borer Treatment.

They are following the advice of the Coalition of Urban Ash tree Conservation that posted their report supporting Emerald ash borer treatment over removal on January 6, 2011.
