• KCB Looking for trees in need: KCB and AG Students in community service

    April 03, 2019
    Do you have a tree that looks like this?

    With invasive winter creeper (euonymus fortunei) crawling up the trunk, where it will then flower and reproduce?  If you want to protect that tree, the vine should be cut at the base of the tree and possibly torn out by the roots (the vine on the bark will die and fall off).  Keep Carbondale Beautiful is partnering with the College of Agricultural Student Advisory Council. We will be working in the community on Thursday, April 11, to help as many trees as we can.  Get on the list by contacting KCB at keepcb1326@gmail.com or 618-525-5525.  Provide address, and name and phone number of home-owner or person in authority who is giving permission.
