Give trees a chance

It’s been a tough few years for Wichita’s trees (what’s new?). First they were dying of thirst; then they were drowning. Drought and flood both damage tree roots, and open the way for diseases and insects to invade. The city of Wichita removed 6,000 dead trees last year, and is on a pace to meet or exceed that number this year.
