Changing times challenges us to keep in touch with as many Witherbee residents as possible. Avenues of communications change and newsletters, web sites, flyers and newspapers are not touching everybody any more. Online social networks have come quickly into the picture as a means to keep each other informed. That is why Witherbee has chosen to include Facebook pages as a communication tool to keep residents, young and old, up-to-date.

Please join Witherbee as a fan on Facebook and you will find pictures of events from cleanups, pool parties, block parties, lighting contests and much more. You will be informed of activities and events from the neighborhood in real time. You will be able to comment on posts, participate in discussions and communicate with each other.

Emerald Ash Borer Speaker at Witherbee Neighborhood Association Meeting August 1

David Olson, Forest Health Specialist with the Nebraska Forest Service will speak about the Emerald Ash Borer at the Witherbee Neighborhood Association’s monthly meeting. The Witherbee neighborhood, lying in the heart of the city, has a large number of ash trees, both on private property and within the City right of way as well as in Stuhr and Witherbee parks. The speaker will discuss how to determine if your tree is infested, making the decision about treatment vs. removal of the tree, timing of tree removal, and qualifications to look for in hiring an EAB treatment specialist or an arborist to remove your tree.

Adam Klingenberg, Community Outreach Forester, will also speak about the process of removing or treating trees in the Witherbee neighborhood that lie within the city right of way. This is of utmost importance to Witherbee residents since there is infestation of several trees near F & 40th Streets, and the City would like to move on this quickly. Homeowners with ash trees that are adjacent to their property, within the city right of way, will need to make a decision as to what they would prefer be done with the tree. The three options are:  1) cut down the tree, 2) remove the tree and replace it, or 3) treat the ash tree. There will be a cost to the resident if they elect to treat the tree. If the tree is to be replaced, the City will provide a voucher to help cover the cost.  Details of all of this will be explained by Adam at our meeting.
