Tree Canopy Committee

Dilworth's tree canopy is aging and we are losing a great number of mature shade trees.             

Join us in our mission to preserve, protect, and plant trees in Dilworth.

The Vision

Our vision is to see the old and sickly trees replaced and encourage the planting of appropriate new trees so that future Dilworth generations will enjoy the benefits and beauty of a healthy and vibrant tree canopy. 

Priorities  & Objectives

  • Educate and Communicate on Tree-related issues 

  • Plant More Trees 

  • Update the Dilworth Street Trees Master Plan  


Additional Objectives & Concerns:

  • tree trimming by the utilities and their contractors 

  • government liaison and advocacy

  • working together with nearby neighborhood associations to achieve greater tree preservation and protection.​

Does the trunk of your crape myrtle look something like the picture shown? Is the bark covered in a black film? If so, your crape myrtle may be infested by crape myrtle bark scale (CMBS).
