Englewood was established in the mid-1800s by miners panning for gold near the confluence of Little Dry Creek and the South Platte. The prospectors were on their way to California, but decided to stay once gold was discovered. Englewood means “wood nook” and its charming neighborhoods are lined with mature trees.
Take Action Against the Emerald Ash Borer Now
About 15 percent of the trees in Englewood are ash trees. These trees are in jeopardy because of the emerald ash borer (EAB) that arrived in Colorado in 2013. This tree pest killed tens of millions of ash trees in the eastern part of the U.S. According to the Colorado State Forest Service, mature ash trees should be treated for emerald ash borer (EAB) this year. DLC Arbor treats ash trees for EAB, lilac borers and other ash tree pests. Click here for the latest news on the EAB.
Lucky to Have American Elms
Fortunately, Colorado’s cool and dry climate has stalled the destruction caused by the Dutch elm beetle. The beetle carries a fungus that kills American elms. However, this does not mean that American elm trees in Englewood should not be treated for this disease. Older neighborhoods in Englewood are graced with American elm trees. Periodic dead wood removal will keep elms vigorous and able to fend off beetle attacks. Homeowners with American elms should contact DLC Arbor to create a tree maintenance program to keep their Americans elms healthy.
