The Emerald Ash Borer does not discriminate. Any homestead, piece of land, park or backyard can be affected. ROOTS is calling creative partners and collaborators to action by offering a “Community Investment Program” Grant.

An eligible project may include a broad range of management activities that mitigate the impact of the EAB on public lands in Sheboygan County and may have a singular focus or multiple components. Eligible activities include but are not limited to:

  • Developing resilient reforestation plans

  • Removing infested trees

  • Planting replacement trees

  • Engaging the community in outreach and education
