  • 51 Broadway New Haven, Connecticut - Dixwell
    This dead Elm tree should be removed as soon as possible to prevent the spread of Dutch Elm Disease. There are two other dead elms nearby on Broadway that should also be removed.
  • 148-182 Church Street New Haven, Connecticut - Downtown
    This tree is showing symptoms of Dutch Elm Disease infection. If the affected branch is removed immediately, there is a good chance the tree can be saved.
  • 233-241 Temple Street New Haven, Connecticut - Downtown
    Yet another tree on the New Haven appears to have contracted Dutch Elm disease. This is going to keep happening, if the city isn't faster about removing diseased trees.
  • Church Street New Haven, Connecticut - Downtown
    This Elm tree, in front of the court house, seems to have been infected by Dutch Elm Disease over the last few weeks and is rapidly deteriorating (leaves are all suddenly wilting and turning brown). It should be attended to immediately to prevent the spread of disease to adjacent trees. Several other Elms nearby are also showing signs of infection and two are nearly dead.
  • 148-182 Church Street New Haven, Connecticut - Downtown
    This large Elm is showing signs of possible Dutch Elm Disease infection in some of its branches. If this is the case, immediate pruning (within the next week) may be effective in saving the tree.
  • 243-245 Temple Street New Haven, Connecticut - Downtown
    This Elm Tree is diseased and should pruned and monitored for possible removal in order to prevent the spread of Dutch Elm Disease to nearby Elms.
  • 148-182 Church Street New Haven, Connecticut - Downtown
    This large Elm Tree on Church Street has just died and should be removed immediately to prevent the spread of Dutch Elm Disease to surrounding Elms.
  • 247-289 Temple Street New Haven, Connecticut - Downtown
    This large Elm tree on Temple Street has just died and should be removed immediately to prevent the spread of Dutch Elm Disease to other nearby Elms.
    Last year it took the City several months to remove dead Elm trees from the Green. If it removes them more quickly this year, the likelihood of more Elms dying next year will be decreased.
  • 252-268 Temple Street New Haven, Connecticut - Downtown
    There are several dead or dying American Elm trees in the New Haven Green (and in several other locations around the city), which look like they might have contracted Dutch Elm Disease. My understanding is that it is important to remove dead Elm trees quickly so as to prevent the spread of the disease to other nearby trees. I can provide additional information about the locations if that would be helpful. Feel free to contact me.
    Thanks!
