Dutch Elm Disease inoculation continues in Tompkins Square Park


[Photo Friday via EVG reader Steven]

Tree technicians arrived in Tompkins Square Park on Friday… hanging the above banner to explain the inoculation process to combat against Dutch Elm Disease and those nasty Elm Bark Beetles. (Can't the rats eat those?)

Anyway, one worker said that June and July marks elm disease season.

Here, EVG correspondent Derek Berg shares some inoculation-in-action photos from today…



The tree technician also inoculated the Hare Krishna Tree in the middle of the Park…

Too bad there's no cure for dog piss.

Oh now you have something against the Dutch? Liz Flock is now writing a follow-up exposé in which she'll trace down your ancestry and that there's Dutch heritage in your blood. It'll be posted in Bland + Bleh.

Waka flocka killah doesn't have time for trees! She's busy working on her hard-hitting exposes of the pee phone contributors, the stoop shitter, and the man who seagulls cabbies on Houston.

I've been getting nervous sitting on the benches under trees in there lately.

Even the little dog in the picture is thinking, "That's not gonna work. Now can you please get out of my way so I can pee on that tree?"

If the whole dog pee thing was even remotely possible, that tree would have fallen a long time ago.
