Homage to the Park Trees

Titusville, New Jersey, United States—Ash trees damaged by ash borer—Joy Kreves

The Ash Borer is devastating trees in the Eastern USA. Washington Crossing Historic Park has lost many ash trees due to this insect. I miss those trees, so this year I went to the park on the New Jersey side, where there are many stumps where trees had to be cut. I sat alone with the cut trees and tried to let them know how grateful I am and how sad I am that they have had to be cut down. I made a bird with plastic and pieces of bark and leaves that lay nearby.  I do feel a little bit of closure after this Global Earth Exchange.

  • Thank you for this heartfelt photo and description of your event. I can feel it with you and am happy for all of us that you did an EE for the trees damaged by the Ash Borer. This insect is only now beginning to come into this area where I live.
