Bring Back Elm Tree Canopies


Elm trees were hit hard by Dutch Elm disease, but new varieties are resistant to this disease.  Create a program for residents to plant Elms on their property including near property boarder where water runoff occurs.  Elm trees would create both a shade canopy and help manage flooding / runoff.  The city aborist could promote the program, planting saplings free of charge on city and residental properties.  The saplings could be much smaller than the trees planted on the city treelawns.
