SIDNEY – The Sidney Tree Board discussed upcoming events at a meeting on March 16.

City employees and Sidney Tree Care will facilitate a spring pruning class on April 21 at 10 a.m. at Tawawa Park. The class can accommodate up to 20 people with a box lunch for each person and a fee will be charged for each person. Four continuing education units (CEU) will be earned. Members asked if the class can be included in the anniversary of Tawawa Park and how to sign up, to which Ryan Mullen with the street department said he will ask Street Superintendent Brian Green.

Holy Angels Catholic School will participate in planting a tree for Arbor Day on April 28. The tree that will be planted, the site of the tree and the time of planting have not been determined.

The Freshman Tree Commission Academy will be held Nov. 15 and 16 in the Shelby County Transit Center conference room.

Members also discussed fall tree sale vendors. Woody’s Warehouse has previously provided trees, and members will look into North Branch Garden Center in Wood County. The new city urban forestry brochure was reviewed and members were satisfied with the format and information.

Hazardous trees recently taken down included one at 1312 Riverbend Blvd. and one on Fair Road. Member Joyce Reier said a tree at Main Avenue and Kossuth Street was also taken down, and members asked why and who took it down. Mullen will ask Green about it.

The next Tree Board meeting will be held on Thursday, May 18, at 4 p.m. in City Hall’s council chambers.
