Good to Know Before you Enroll!

MAP KEY NEW! First Time Offered Give it a try!

A Cooperative Program Agreement with other local recreation departments or agencies.

Spectators

Register First

All persons are required to register PRIOR to participation in ANY program. Registrations and fees cannot be handled at the sites by instructors or any staff members. Please be prepared to show your receipt at the first class session. Instructors have the authority to disallow participation until proof is given. Registration Information (page 59) Enrollment Forms (pages 58/60)

Ages Indicated

Children must be the age indicated on or before the FIRST class session.

Self-care “Time Out” Dates This is the date our staff checks class enrollment status. If the minimum enrollment has not been met, the class may be cancelled.

In classes where caregivers are not required, children must be able to provide self-care in a group setting (ie: able to wash hands and use restroom facilities without assistance).

Starting & Ending Class Times

PM). Remember to bring your receipt

Our instructors need time to open facilities and prepare for your class. Please provide proper supervision as children “dropped off” before classes start will not be supervised by our staff. Instructors will call their class and take attendance. Parents should wait until this has taken place before leaving. Classes will end as scheduled. Instructors are either preparing for the next class or closing the facility; your promptness in picking up your child is necessary.

Early Bird Discount Register early and save!

Please do not arrive prior to 10 minutes before the start of your class as the locker rooms or class room may not be open before this time. If your program involves use of locker rooms, plan to depart no later than 10 minutes after the scheduled conclusion of your program.

Yes, you can register in-person or by fax after the “Time Out” date if openings exist. To check class status call

(414) 329-5370 (M-F 8 AM-5

Waiting Areas

Special Refund Note Due to the purchasing of supplies, requests for refunds, credits or transfers after the “Time Out” date will only be honored if your spot can be filled.

4 GENERAL INFORMATION

Most facilities have a designated spot where parents may wait during classes. Please help us keep the privilege of use of these facilities by not wandering around the buildings, no food or drink, and please keep siblings under supervision.

Makeups

Classes missed for individual absences (ie: illness, vacations, etc.) are not “made up,” nor may participants attend classes other than the one they are registered for.

One of the fundamental instructional program goals is to provide your child with a fun and positive learning opportunity with their peers while developing separation skills. Parents are welcome to observe the last scheduled class of the semester. (Exception: Swim lessons, spectators are permitted on the first day also.) For the best instructional atmosphere, observation of other class sessions is not permitted. Please feel free to discuss your child’s progress before and after class with the instructor.

• Parent/Child Classes

T he spectator policy remains the same. Please make arrangements for siblings as they will not be permitted in the program location and may not be left unsupervised in hallway or locker room areas.

• Adult Classes

P  lease make arrangements for your children as they will not be permitted in the program location and may not be left unsupervised in hallways or locker room areas.

Round Up Sponsorships

The Department does not wish to exclude any City of Greenfield youth from participation on the basis of their ability to pay. There is an opportunity during registration to donate to help this cause by “rounding up” your registration fee to provide financial assistance for those unable to afford program fees for youth programs. A donation line is included on the registration form – you can donate any amount you see fit by adding the amount to your program fee total. Persons who feel they are unable to afford the cost of a youth activity may apply for a reduction of fees utilizing the “Round Up” Sponsorship donations which help fund these requests. City of Greenfield residents may apply for financial assistance by contacting the Parks & Recreation Department office at least one week prior to registering for youth programs.

AQUATICS American Red Cross

SWIMMING AND WATER SAFETY PROGRAM Our Learn to Swim program follows the principles and methods of the American Red Cross to combine the best in swim instruction with a strong emphasis on drowning prevention and water safety. Learn how to swim with the most trusted name in aquatic training. LEVELS: Please refer to the chart on page 19.

PROFESSIONAL STAFF: The Greenfield Parks & Recreation Department is a Licensed Training Provider of American Red Cross programs. Our staff members are trained and certified American Red Cross Water Safety Instructors (WSI) and American Red Cross Lifeguards (LG).

Pool Temperature & Maintenance

Water and air temperature is regulated by the High School maintenance department, not the Department of Parks & Recreation. Due to limited capabilities of swimming pool equipment the maintenance department is making every attempt to maintain a water temperature of 80°. This may be cold for some swimmers.

Pool Location & Locker Rooms

• Whitnall High School Pool Located at 5000 South 116th Street (116th Street between Layton & Edgerton Aves). Use the entrance to the far left when you face the building. Enter, turn to your right, and proceed down the hall to the locker rooms. The only pool entrance is through the locker rooms. • Greenfield High School Pool Located at 4800 S 60th Street (S. 60th & Layton Aves). Use door #11 located on the south side of the building. Upon entering, turn to your left to walk towards the pool doors. Locker room entrances are also to your left down a hallway. Please enter the pool from the locker rooms. The Greenfield High School Pool does offer a Family locker room.

Lesson Observation

Please be advised, once lessons start, only participants and staff may be in the pool area. Parents may observe on the first and last lesson only, as spectators are a distraction to the young swimmers.

SWIM PRE-TEST

• New to the swim instruction program? • Has it been a few years since the last lesson? A Swim Pretest is an opportunity for: • One-on-one skill screening • Level placement • Introducing yourself and your child to the facility Pre-registration required.

Swimming & Water Safety Levels

The American Red Cross offers comprehensive course levels that teach your child how to swim skillfully and safely. Skills taught are progressive, so children advance upon completion of all the skills in the previous level. New to our program? Either enroll your child in Starfish (Ages 4-6) or Level One (Ages 6-9), or attend a swim pre-test session to determine which level is most appropriate for your child, based upon their water skills. Levels

Requirements

Skills Taught

PARENT AND CHILD AQUATICS Parent/Child Swim

Ages 1-4 Years

Ratio 1:10

Each child must be accompanied by parent or caregiver

Parents and children learn together to increase a child’s comfort level in the water and build a foundation of basic skills, such as arm and leg movements and breath control. This level is funfilled and helps introduce water safety concepts, encouraging a healthy recreational habit. If your child is not 100% toilet trained, they will need to wear a swim diaper under their swim suit. The water temperature is approximately 80 degrees, which may be cold for younger swimmers, so a long-sleeved swim/sun type top is recommended.

PRESCHOOL AQUATICS (AGES 4-6) Preschool Level 1 (Starfish) Ratio 1:6

Preschool Level 2 (Seahorse) Ratio 1:6

Preschool Level 3 (Goldfish) Ratio 1:6

Ages 4-6 Years Prerequisite: Child must be able to submerge head under water

Ages 4-6 Years Prerequisite: Successfully complete Starfish

Ages 5-6 Years Prerequisite: Successfully complete Seahorse

Starfish orients children to the aquatic environment and helps them gain basic aquatic skills that are the foundation for the later levels. Front and back, floats, glides, leg and arm actions are taught. Age appropriate water safety topics are reviewed.

Seahorse builds upon the Starfish skills to help children gain greater independence in their skills and develop more comfort in and around the water. Bobs, retrieving objects under water, floating and gliding independently, treading water, and combined arm-and-leg actions front and back are the focus.

Goldfish further develops the Seahorse skills so children gain basic swimming propulsive skills. Floats and glides into a vertical position, rotary breathing, how to change direction while swimming, treading water, independent swimming on front and back strokes are the primary focus.

LEARN-TO-SWIM (AGES 6-TEENS) Level 1

Ages 6-13 Years

Ratio 1:6

There are no prerequisites for this level

Level 2 Ratio 1:6

Level 3 Ratio 1:6

Level 4 Ratio 1:8

Level 5 Ratio 1:8

Level 6 Ratio 1:8

Beyond Level 6 Ratio 1:8

Ages 6-13 Years Prerequisite: Level 1, 7 years old and completed Seahorse

Ages 6-13 Years Prerequisite: Successful completion of Level 2 or Goldfish

Ages 6-13 Years Prerequisite: Successful completion of Level 3

Ages 8-13 Years Prerequisite: Successful completion of Level 4

Ages 9-13 Years

Introduction to Water Skills Level 1 teaches basic personal water safety and skills to help children feel comfortable in the water while learning elementary aquatic skills. Age appropriate water safety topics are reviewed. Fundamental Aquatic Skills Level 2 gives participants success with fundamental skills such as floating and recover to vertical position. Participants continue to explore simultaneous and alternating arm action on front and back.

Stroke Development Level 3 teaches the survival float, elementary backstroke, breaststroke, backstroke and coordination of front crawl. Participants are introduced to dolphin kick. Swimming in deep water and basic diving skills.

Stroke Improvement Level 4 develops confidence in previously learned strokes and increases distance swimming. Backstroke and breaststroke are further developed. Participants are introduced to butterfly and taught sidestroke.

Stroke Refinement Level 5 refines strokes learned in Level 4 and increases distances of swimming. Participants are also introduced to front and back flip turns.

Prerequisite: Successful completion of Level 5

Swimming and Skill Proficiency Level 6 refines the strokes so participants swim with ease, efficiency, power and smoothness over greater distances. It helps prepare for more advanced classes such as Lifeguarding and Competitive Swimming.

Prerequisite: Successful completion of Level 6

This level is unique to Greenfield Parks & Recreation to keep kids swimming. Stroke refinements, junior lifeguarding skills, fitness swimming are just some of the things this level can cover all based upon the interest of the class.

PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT

Swimming is a recreational activity that will last a lifetime. Learning to swim happens with swim lessons and spending time in the water during Open Swim for water exploration and play. As a benefit of enrolling your children in the Greenfield Parks & Recreation Departments Learn to Swim program, you are automatically able to attend our Open Swim time at no additional cost during the dates of your class, by showing your Learn to Swim receipt at the door. This benefit is for both you and your child who is in lessons (other family members will be charged our regular admission). You and your child can come to the pool to have fun while providing time for them to practice and develop their skills.

Private Swim Lessons Adult & Youth (Ages 6+)

Private swim lessons are designed to help meet the needs of participants who are seeking more individualized instruction. Teens and adults seeking to improve their swim strokes are welcome. One of our swim instructors will be assigned to work one-on-one with you or your child to accomplish specific strokes or skills during the class. Note: After the “Time Out” date, due to the scheduling of staff, there are no credits or refunds. (*)Non-resident families who reside within or have children attending any Greenfield or Whitnall School District public school will be assessed at the resident rate.

There will be emphasis placed on the physical techniques so the participant’s body can begin growing with the movements and burn up energy. The very basics will be taught, with additions of important outside aspects for children such as stranger self-defense and lost- inthe-store safety. CHILDREN (Ages 6-12 years) Children’s Tae Kwon Do is great for development of self-discipline and physical fitness. Children who learn Tae Kwon Do also benefit from increased self-esteem, more confidence and assertiveness, more focus and concentration, better discipline and self-control, respect for authority, self-defense, and physical activity. Children who study this art will learn when it is okay to use it as the code. The martial artist forbids unfair assaults or unnecessary use of force, so it is for emergencies only.

Adults, Seniors, Teens (Ages 16+) Joe Peterson and Staff, Chosun Black Belt Academy, Instructors Now, more than ever, it is important to have some basic self-defense skills.

In this course, we will teach some basic premises about the strengths of your body versus the weaknesses of your opponent’s. Learn humane, realistic hand-tohand self-defense techniques that will allow you to rewrite a self-defense script and put yourself in the position of advantage rather than one of being the victim. (Wear loose, comfortable clothes to move around in. Attendees will train without shoes, but can wear socks if they like) Thursday / 1 session 6:30-8:00 PM May 16 104137-01 Chosun Black Belt Academy 7123 S. 76th Street $20 (R) / $30 (NR) Time Out: Tuesday, May 7

TEEN/ADULT (Ages 13+) Tae Kwon Do is great for mental, physical, and spiritual development. Become more flexible, agile, and physically stronger while increasing balance. For a Tae Kwon Do practitioner, his entire body is his weapon, defending easily against all aggressors with their hands, fists, elbows, knees, and feet. FAMILY (Youth (Ages 6+) to Adults) Tae Kwon Do is a wonderful activity to practice as a family! Parents will have a great time working out with their children in the same class. Tae Kwon Do has SO many benefits for both children AND adults that it makes it the perfect way to stay fit and have fun TOGETHER. For adults, TKD helps to increase flexibility, relieve stress, strengthen balance and learn lifesaving self-defense. In children, TKD helps to improve confidence, increase focus, build stronger physical skills like balance, coordination and agility, in addition to building great goalsetting skills. No matter the reason for practicing Tae Kwon Do initially, students of the art benefit physically, mentally and spiritually. Practice Tae Kwon Do together but feel the benefits as an individual!

Italians focus on the importance of freshness and simplicity using seasonal ingredients of the best quality to create fabulous meals.  Tonight, enjoy some of Staci’s favorites… Italian Beef Spiedini; Aglio, Olio ed Erbe (Pasta with Garlic, Olive Oil & Herbs); Cauliflower Calabrese; and Torta di Riso (Italian rice pie).

THE LEGACY OF THE PARKS As part of the City’s 50th Celebration Legacy Project in 2006, a fountain was placed in Bicentennial Park (51st & Layton, near the Law Enforcement Center, Fire Station and Library) as a centerpiece. Surrounding features include flag poles, benches, and a stone marker, all framed by a beautiful garden and landscaping. The outer area of the fountain is paved with bricks, providing a unique opportunity to make a lasting mark to:

• Commemorate your family’s place in Greenfield History • Remember a loved one • Honor a family member, friend or associate • Recognize an achievement • Celebrate a special occasion/event • Promote your business

The bricks are engraved using a laser process that will penetrate, melt and crystallize the clay brick, resulting in a permanent engraving. The money raised from this project will help fund numerous projects within the City of Greenfield Parks & Recreation Department. Orders are accepted throughout the year. Bricks are installed in either Spring or Fall. All contributions are tax deductible, pricing is subject to change.

Welcome to the Winter/Spring Edition of the GREENfield SHEET! By the time you receive this, the November elections will be behind us. Whatever the outcomes, I personally want to thank all that have exercised their right to vote. It makes not only Greenfield, but the world a better place. I am so grateful to the Board members of Dan Jansen Fest who are celebrating their 25th year of generosity in making our community a better place. Recently they have announced that the Moving Wall, a traveling half-size replica of the Vietnam Memorial in Washington D.C., will be coming to Greenfield. The Moving Wall travels around the country, allowing veterans and the public to visit and view a memorial that recognizes the men and women who served and died during the Vietnam War. It will be displayed at Konkel Park during the Memorial Day activities, 24 hours a day starting at 2 p.m. on May 23rd through 4 p.m. on May 27th. It is truly an honor for our city. Even more special, plans are developing for the creation of a permanent Veterans Memorial at Konkel Park. This permanent memorial will recognize all Veterans who have sacrificed so much for so many. Please look for further announcements for opportunities to contribute and/or volunteer. Konkel Park is becoming a cultural and civic center for the City and the Memorial will be an integral part. The Farmers Market on Sunday mornings continues to be more and more successful. During weeknights and weekends throughout the year, a variety of events are held at The Amp, The Amphaus, and the recreational fields. Going into 2019, 84 South is in the stages of its final build out. Look for construction to begin on the corner of 84th & Layton in the Spring. This project has been a successful transformation for the City. While I’m saddened by Target’s recent announcement to close their store on South 27th Street in February, every challenge brings opportunity. The Historic 41 Business Improvement District (which calls 27th Street it’s home) is actively working to continue to reinvigorate “The Street.” I continue to expect more redevelopment opportunities in the future. Spring Mall, Southridge, Loomis Crossing, and other areas throughout the City all continue to have expressed interest in redevelopmental opportunities. Our big road project for 2019 will be Morgan Avenue between Forest Home and 43rd Street. Like Edgerton last year, it is funded primarily with federal dollars administered through a State let contract. Also planned for 2019 is the resurfacing of 43rd Street from Grange to Ramsey. It is a project more complicated than one might think because of storm water concerns and a shared boundary with neighboring Greendale. Plans for all City projects are available in the Department of Neighborhood Services. Leaves are falling, soon enough snow will too. Please know that we will continue to work diligently to make sure the roads are clear and safe. Keep in mind those that work all hours to make Greenfield a better place. We have some great folks working on your behalf. Happy Holidays to you and your family. Thank you for trusting me, and all the city employees as we work to make our community a better place.

HOLIDAY SCAMS

Since it’s the holidays, the scammers are setting their sights on you to finance their New Year. They are hoping that your finances are tight enough that you would believe you are an instant winner of a contest you never entered and all you have to do is cash the check they sent you and wire it back to them to cover the taxes. Needless to say, it is a bad check and your bank will hold you responsible for cashing it. These notices will come in the mail, e-mail, or text messages and they may even be on letterhead and they will look legitimate.

Do Not Fall For It!

Classes begin March, 2019 For more information, contact:

CRIME PREVENTION

The Greenfield Police Department offers many crime prevention and community outreach services. Dozens of useful links are available at the Police Department’s Community Service Page on the web at: http://www.greenfieldpolice.org/community/community.html Community Service Officers are available to help in forming block watch groups, and attend neighborhood meetings and community events. To contact our Community Service staff call (414) 761-5337.

BEFORE SENDING MONEY, DOES THIS SOUND FAMILIAR? • Are you sending money to claim a lottery prize? • Are you sending money to help someone get a large sum of money out of their country? • Are you sending money because a relative called from another state or country and told you that they need help? • Are you sending money because you were “guaranteed” a credit card or loan? • Are you sending money to someone you have not met personally? • Are you sending money to someone you’ve never met to pay for their trip to America? These are just some examples of scams being perpetrated using money transfers. If any of these sound like your situation, please call the Greenfield Police Department at (414) 761-5301 for advice.

DON’T LEAVE YOUR CAR RUNNING With the cold weather arriving, people want to stay warm in their vehicle. Some people will warm their cars prior to beginning their journey and others will allow their cars to run when they make a quick stop at the gas station, friend’s house, or shopping center. If you are one of these people, do not be surprised if your car is not there when you need to leave. This is an easy target for car thieves. When you leave your car, turn it off , lock it up, and take your keys with you. Do not leave your car unattended when it is running.

SNOW EMERGENCY

When a Snow Emergency is declared, the City notifies the media outlets in the Milwaukee area. Watch and listen for snow emergency announcements and be aware of the times indicated. During a snow emergency, parking is completely prohibited on major streets and any cars found on these streets are cited and towed. Snow emergency streets include: 27th Street, 35th Street, 43rd Street, 51st Street, 60th Street, 68th Street, 76th Street, 84th Street, 92nd Street, 104th Street, 112th Street, 116th Street, 124th Street, Morgan Avenue, Howard Avenue, Cold Spring Road, Layton Avenue, Edgerton Avenue, Grange Avenue, Ramsey Avenue, College Avenue, Loomis Road, Forest Home Avenue, Beloit Road, and 31st Street between Edgerton Avenue and Grange Avenue.

The City of Greenfield has partnered with SeeClickFix to announce a new platform (called “Greenfield Resolve It”) that will allow citizens to report quality-of-life issues and request City of Greenfield services. With free SeeClickFix mobile app and web tools, Greenfield citizens will now be able to provide department staff with pictures, videos, specific descriptions, and more — valuable information needed to get the job done efficiently. In addition, the SeeClickFix platform provides Greenfield officials with a centralized issue management system to manage issues from creation to resolution — engaging Greenfield citizens throughout the process. This partnership not only allows Greenfield citizens to report problems, but also to view, comment on, and vote to fix problems submitted by their neighbors. Citizens can even create their own “watch areas” to receive notifications about all the issues reported in their community, enabling them to follow the progress of all service requests — not just the ones they report. The Greenfield Resolve It mobile app is available for download on Android and iPhone. In addition to the mobile apps, citizens can send reports to the Greenfield’s website and seeclickfix.com.

About SeeClickFix SeeClickFix was founded in 2008 to empower citizens with tools to publicly document quality of life concerns in their neighborhoods. By radically improving the quantity and quality of this data, SeeClickFix was quickly adopted by local governments, who needed a better way to receive information from citizens. This exchange helped to build one of the largest neighborhood networks in the world — upon which public agencies and public citizens engage to improve communities. Today, SeeClickFix has official partnerships with hundreds of cities, engaging hundreds of thousands of citizens in the resolution of millions of issues. SeeClickFix has worked with government partners to develop municipal management tools on top of this citizen network. As SeeClickFix is adopted into the everyday lives of government users, the benefit of the engaged citizen base continues to grow.

DO I NEED A PERMIT FOR THAT?

The City of Greenfield is committed to keeping its citizens safe. One way to ensure that, is to implement and enforce local building codes. Through the implementation of safety codes, local code officials assure you, the residents of Greenfield, of safe, efficient and livable buildings. Whether you’re doing a basement remodel, adding a small outdoor storage shed, constructing a retaining wall above 24” in height, working on a bathroom remodel, changing electrical outlets or installing a pool, this is a friendly reminder that you should contact the City of Greenfield Inspection Services Division to apply for a permit. What happens if I don’t pull a permit? The City will never find out… Not true. In fact, when you sell (or purchase) your home, title companies often request the City to do a search of recent permit history. Title companies know what type of improvements your home includes, and if the improvements don’t match the permits, you won’t be able to sell (or purchase) your house until the dispute is rectified. In addition, after-the-fact permits may be cost you 2-4 times the standard fee. I’ve pulled a permit, now what? Work may commence and your contractors should call the Inspection Services Division for occasional progress inspections. Remember to also call for final inspection, to close your open permit. Open permits are another thing that title companies search for and will delay the sale (or purchase) of your home. Final inspection requests are all too often forgotten, but are very important. IF NOTHING ELSE, please call the Inspection Services Division at 414-329-5330 to inquire whether or not you need to apply for a permit for improvements to your home. We’re here to help you and ensure that your home investment is completed in the right manner. https://wi-greenfield2.civicplus.com/260/Inspection-Services

Children can be seriously injured or die from heatstroke, especially young children. A car can heat up 19 degrees in just 10 minutes, and even cracking a window will not help. Here are a few tips to help prevent accidental injury or death from heatstroke: 1. Avoid heatstroke-related injury and death by never leaving your child alone in a car, not even for a minute. Always lock your doors and trunks – even in your driveway. And keep your keys and key fobs out of the reach of kids.   2. Create reminders by putting some thing in the back of your car next to your child such as a briefcase, a purse or a cell phone that is needed at your final destination. This is especially important if you’re not following your normal routine.  3. Take action. If you see a child alone in a car, call 911. Emergency personnel want you to call. They are trained to respond to these situations. One call could save a life.

Cover Your Cough! Wash Your Hands! As cold and influenza season continues, it is important to remember that covering your cough or sneeze is the most important way you can prevent spreading illness to others. Thorough hand washing after coughing or sneezing is important to prevent contamination of shared surfaces such as doorknobs, since research indicates that bacteria and viruses may live for two hours or more on surfaces. To stop the spread of germs, you should: • Cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve or elbow. • You may also cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, throwing away the tissue after use. • Wash your hands.

Keys to good hand washing include:

• Wet hands under warm running water and apply soap. • While washing, pay extra attention to the front and back, between your fingers, around your wrists and under your nails. • The appropriate length of time to wash your hands is the time taken to sing “Happy Birthday” or the “A, B, C Song” (approximately 15-20 seconds). • Rinse your hands well under warm water. • Dry your hands completely using paper towel, and use the paper towel to turn off the faucet. • Alcohol hand gels or sanitizers may also be used to clean your hands when soap and water are unavailable.

The Greenfield Health Department wishes you health and safety this winter. By following the information presented above, you will increase your chances of being healthy during the winter months. For more information, contact the Greenfield Health Department at 414329-5275. The Greenfield Health Department is available on the internet at www.greenfieldwi.us.

How Radon Enters a House

$3 Radon Test Kits Available for ALL Greenfield Residents Radon is gas it is hard to know if you are breathing it in at home because you: • Can’t see it • Can’t Smell it • Can’t taste it

It is also radioactive! Ok, so where does it come from? Radon is a naturally in our soil and happens when uranium starts to decay, or breakdown. It gets into our homes through the very tiny cracks, holes, and other seals in the home’s foundation. It is dangerous! When you or your family are constantly breathing in Radon, you are at a higher risk of lung cancer. In fact, it’s the #1 leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers in the United States.

Focus on Carbon Monoxide

Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas produced when fuels such as gasoline, kerosene, wood, coal, oil, natural gas and charcoal do not have enough oxygen to burn completely. The potential for Carbon Monoxide exposure increases during the fall and winter months as the temperature decreases, and homeowners supplement their home’s heat with the use of fireplaces and portable heaters. Symptoms of carbon monoxide exposure are headache, fatigue dizziness, shortness of breath, nausea, and mental confusion. Continued exposure may lead to more serious health problems, including death. The Greenfield Health Department encourages the use of carbon monoxide detectors in homes.

Restoring our City’s Tree Canopy

Greenfield DPW/Forestry and Engineering Departments are attempting to restore at least some of the City’s tree canopy lost to Emerald ash borer by taking advantage of available grants. You may have noticed new plantings along a water shed area of Konkel Park or the developing forest recently planted at 124th and Howard. Both areas planted will affect the quality and volume of water that potentially runs off into the adjacent creeks and ultimately Lake Michigan, while helping to restore our tree canopy. We thank the Bay Lakes Association and Sweetwater for the opportunities their grants have provided.

Alert: Remove dead ash trees promptly before they become a hazard!

The devastating effects of emerald Ash borer can be seen all around us, evidenced by the dead trees everywhere we turn. What you may not know is that as ash trees die, they become more brittle and potentially hazardous than most other tree species. The same straight, tight grain that makes Ash great for baseball bats and splitting firewood is also why its limbs and leaders easily split apart when dry. Homeowners should remove dead Ash trees promptly, especially if the tree is located near a home, driveway, play area, road or pedestrian walkway. Dead Ash become brittle so quickly that a simple removal, just months later may not be a simple removal. Brittle ash can break apart in unexpected ways and cause significant damage. A professional tree service can evaluate the tree’s condition and determine if an Arborist climber can safely work in the tree or if a crane and/or bucket truck is required. The longer the dead tree is left standing, the drier and more dangerous it will become making tree removal increasingly more complicated and expensive.
