Not all trees created environmentally equal

With tree planting being one of the most effective ways to help the environment, one local horticulture expert is promoting native trees to make an even more positive impact.  Tom Wolfe of Fish Creek, who has lived in Door County for over 30 years, says native trees offer the greatest benefits in this area especially as part of landscaping near streets.  He recommends a variety of native trees that can help replace ash trees that may have been lost due to disease or storms. 



Wolfe says not all trees are environmentally green.  He says many landscape trees like the Norway maple are invasive and are choking off the native trees that provide a food source for the larva of insects that migratory birds use as protein for their long trips.  Wolfe will be giving his “All trees are not green” presentation next Saturday at the Kress Pavilion in Egg Harbor as part of the Every Day is Earth Day event.
