Several pines around the Village are diseased and are dying. The Village has checked with an Arborist to help identify trees which tolerate poor clay soil, wet soil, and shaded conditions. Keep these native trees in mind if you are planting new trees on your property. This may preserve and extend the life of trees you select.
