Urban Forestry Grant

June 06, 2019
The Village of Yorkville has some exciting news: Over the next few months you will see members of the Oneida County Soil and Water Conservation District walking around the Village identifying and measuring trees within the parks and along the streets. The Village of Yorkville was a recipient of NYS Department of Environmental Conservationís Urban Forestry Grant. This Grant covers an inventory of all the Village owned/maintained street and park trees. This grant also covers writing a management plan to lay out future goals for the trees that are owned/maintained by the Village. Having a tree inventory and management plan will help our community be proactive by identifying early stages of tree disease or insect problems such as Emerald Ash Borer.
