Worth the Hard Work

Mike Schmaltz is spearheading planting trees in Anamoose.  The city council, of which Mike is a member, has set up a 4 year plan.  This year 20-25 trees will be planted for a cost of $1500-$1600.  So far, Mike; his daughter Tiffany; Britany Schmaltz; & Torie Dosch have planted 4 trees in the park, 2 at the fire hall, & 6 at the south entrance into Anamoose.  They are planting 3 different species of linden, 3 different species of maples and also some birch trees.  The trees average 40-60 feet tall.

Trapper, Mike’s dog, was having a great time running through the water while they worked.

Some local residents have removed dead elm trees infected with Dutch Elm Disease.
