More and more elms in New York City protected against Dutch Elm Disease
For several years now DutchTrig® has been used to protect elms in New York, amongst others in Prospect Park (Brooklyn) and The Bronx.
In 2017 elms will also be injected with DutchTrig® in Manhattan, more specifically in Theodore Roosenvelt Park, Morningside Park, St. Nicholas Park and Ft. Tryon.
The elm protection programme will also be extended in Brooklyn this year by injecting elms in the Eastern Parkway with DutchTrig®. More than 1,100 trees make up this park and many special events, like ‘Welcome back to Brooklyn’, are organized here every year. Different types of trees have been planted here in the past to prevent Dutch Elm Disease from spreading. By injecting the elms now, we can preserve these important and valuable trees to protect the future appearance of the Eastern Parkway.
