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.
