De Pere Park, Recreation &

Forestry Department

925 S. Sixth Street, De Pere, WI 54115 www.de-pere.org

Dear Resident,

You know, I have always worried about writing this article and not having much to say. Since I have been here for five years, I don’t think

I’ve ever struggled to find something to relay to our residents. It’s a credit to our department’s hardworking staff to always bring new and

exciting things to our community. So that being said, I have three wonderful items to share with you.

First - after a long wait and many hours of hard work by the community we have opened our first ever dog park! The De Pere Dog Park is a

9-acre puppy paradise, which has bigger and bolder plans for the future. The park is located on Bio-Tech Way just off of American Boulevard

(west side industrial park) and has many wonderful current amenities (i.e. small dog area, trails, woods, open run, etc...). The Dog Park

would not have been possible, if not for the hard work and dedication of a group of volunteers.

Second - with hard economic times upon us, our staff has went above and beyond and has grown the Recreation Scholarship Fund to record

amounts. We have been able to help close to 20 needy families this past year participate in recreational programming they normally would

not be able to afford. We are shooting to double that amount for next year. A big thank you to the community that has financially supported

this effort to help families in need! If you have questions about using the Scholarship Fund or how to assist, please feel free to contact me or

anyone within our department.

Third - some new and exciting baseball news. After not having a legitimate “home” for many years, with the cooperation of Dan and Pat

Mangless we are now developing a baseball field at Southwest Park to call home for the Pony League. With the Mangless’ generous support we

will be developing a state of the art baseball diamond for Pony League participants, which will feature lights and a grass infield.

Sincerely,

Marty J. Kosobucki

Director of Parks, Recreation and Forestry

Parks & Forestry

NEW DOG PARK

The City of De Pere now has a new Dog

Park! The De Pere Dog Park has been 3

years in the making and is a direct result of

private donations. Although the park is

currently nine acreas of puppy paradise,

we have future plans for expansion which

needs support from our community. These

future plans include fencing an additional

9 acres of land to the north (including a

three acre pond with piers); a permanent

restroom facility; pet and human watering

stations; a gazebo and much more. With

your continued support we hope to make

the De Pere Dog Park a family destination

for you and your dog.

The dog park has many options for providing financial support,

ranging from simple donations at the “donation box” to naming

rights for larger donations. All of the donations go directly into

an isolated fund that is to be used for future improvements.

Please contact the Park, Recreation and Forestry Department

with any questions you have about financially supporting the

future of the De Pere Dog Park. We can be reached at 339-

8362 or through email at dmelichar@mail.de-pere.org. You can

also check on the progress of the park and the efforts of our

volunteer committee at www.deperedogpark.com.

GOOSE PATROL PROGRAM

The City has a program that allows residents to help control

geese in specific parks. This program allows you to take your

dog into one of these parks to harass the geese. The resident

will need a permit and the dog a vest to participate. Please

contact the Park, Recreation and Forestry Department at 339-

4065 for further details.

PARKWAY TREE PRUNING

OR REMOVAL

The De Pere Forestry Department will perform all pruning and

removal of parkway trees. Parkway trees are all trees that fall

within the City right-of-way (those that are between the curb

and the back of the sidewalk or where it would be located).

Pruning will take place either at the time of planting (typically

only broken or damaged limbs will be removed), upon the

request of a property owner, on a periodic pruning cycle or as

the need is determined by the City (i.e. branches are a hazard).

Though the trees may look different, please be assured that our

crewmembers are trained and have an action plan when they

approach a tree. Removal requests are evaluated by the City

Forester. Trees are also periodically evaluated by City staff and

may be targeted for removal. Homeowners are notified and

advised of their options.

The City of De Pere will not “top” trees on any City property

and it is likewise not advised that any other individual or

company partake in such a practice. Topping a tree opens

the tree to insect and disease attacks, causes severe internal

decay and structural problems and reduces the trees ability to

manufacture stored root reserves. This practice is extremely

detrimental to all trees and does not follow the natural growth

habits of the plants.

Please consult the City Forester about any pruning questions

for City owned trees or your own trees.

MEMORIAL TREE PLANTING PROGRAM

The City of De Pere has a program that lets you honor a

special person or persons through the living gift of a tree. You can

request to “donate” a tree or trees that would be planted in the

park of your choice as a memorial. For more details of

this program, please call the City Forester at 339-8362.

PARK RULES & ORDINANCES

The City of De Pere Park, Recreation & Forestry Department has developed a number of park rules and ordinances that we

hope will make your visit a positive experience. Your cooperation in abiding by these rules during your park visit is greatly appreciated.

1) Park hours are from 6:00 a.m. - 11:00 p.m. Exception: Voyageur Park hours are 6:00 a.m. - 12:00 a.m., midnight.

2) Dogs and other animals are not permitted in any parks (except in the Dog Park, on the East River Trail or as part of the

Goose Patrol program). *Dogs must be leashed & waste removed.

3) Vehicles permitted only on designated roads and parking areas. Speed limit is 15 miles per hour.

4) Glass containers are not allowed in any park.

5) Open shelters are available to the general public. If a shelter is rented to an individual and/or group, preference for the use of

this shelter is then given to this individual and/or group.

These are the most commonly misinterpreted rules. For a complete listing of all park ordinances contact the Park, Recreation & Forestry

Department at 339-4065.

PARKWAY TREE

PLANTING PROGRAM

Fall tree planting orders were taken until September 16th.

Our spring orders will begin in mid-February. The tree species

and varieties will be determined at that time. Further

information can be obtained by calling the Park, Recreation &

Forestry Department at 339-8362 or it can be accessed on the

City’s website at www.de-pere.org. During the above dates, the

form for ordering trees willl be available on that website.

*It should be noted that De Pere has an ordinance limiting

homeowner plantings in the terrace or on any City right-of-way

and requires you to fill out a ROW Planting Permit. If you have

a question or concern, please contact the City Forester for

clarification.*

ARBORICULTURAL

SPECIFICATIONS MANUAL

Our arboricultural specifications manual helps the City of

De Pere to manage and maintain all trees located upon City

grounds. It can also serve as a guide to homeowners and

professionals alike. For a copy of this manual you can either

access it in the Forestry section of the City of De Pere

website, www.de-pere.org, or you can contact

the City Forester.

DUTCH ELM DISEASE &

OAK WILT

Dutch Elm Disease and Oak Wilt continue to be

killers of our elm and oak. DED never went away

and Oak Wilt is only a short distance away from

De Pere. As a landowner, you can help prevent

or slow down the spread of these diseases by

not pruning either species from April 1st to

September 1st.

If your tree is dying or dies from one of these

diseases, the City of De Pere has an ordinance

that declares them a nuisance and requires them

to be removed in a timely fashion or an

abatement procedure could be started. Please help

us control these fatal diseases with timing and sanitation.

GYPSY MOTHS

Gypsy moths can be a destructive pest of many of our trees

and shrubs in De Pere. Oak trees, unfortunately, are a favorite

of the Gypsy Moth and therefore many of our control efforts

continue to focus on areas of high populations of these

magnificent trees. The City of De Pere Forestry Department

continues to monitor and help control gypsy moth in De Pere.

Egg mass oiling, aerial spraying, placing burlap ‘skirts’ on trees,

and insect destruction on City owned trees are just some of the

ways we do so. You can also help to monitor and control them

by checking your own trees, shrubs, woodpiles and outdoor

furniture for the presence of eggs, caterpillars, and/or pupae.

When they are found, please destroy them by cutting,

crushing, scraping, oiling or treating them. To learn how to

control each stage of the insect please consult your Forester, a

tree care professional or one of the many websites (especially

www.gypsymoth.wi.gov) dedicated to Gypsy Moth..

EMERALD ASH BORER

Since its discovery in GreenBay in 2009 there has not been

another confirmed finding of EAB in the Brown County area.

There has, however, been more planning, scouting, bark peeling

(to look for signs of the insect) and overall education that has

taken place. Municipalities like De Pere have been more diligent

during our daily operations to make sure we are on the lookout

for EAB. We have been involved with regional planning and

education efforts to make sure departments and residents alike are

aware of signs, symptoms and possible outcomes of EAB. The City

of De Pere Forestry Department will continue to work on a local

and regional EAB Management Plan. The main focus of these

management plans will be to provide common policies and

information dissemination.

EAB is a small, brilliant green beetle about the same

size as our native Bronze Birch Borer (which attacks

and kills white birch). These adults lay eggs on

the bark of ash trees. Upon hatching, the tiny

larvae bore under the bark and begin feeding

in the cambial (the transport system)

layer of the tree. These larvae feed

in winding serpentine patterns

under the bark, essentially

girdling the trees as they go.

Upon maturing, the adult exits

the bark forming a distinctive

”D” shaped exit hole. Signs to

look for include bark cracking,

crown dieback, heavy woodpecker activity and

sprouts on the trunk of the tree. It usually takes 2 - 5 years for the

tree to fully show damage from EAB. Unfortunately, many of

these signs are also indicative of other diseases and insects that

already infect our ash. If you suspect that you may have this

insect, please contact your City Forester, a County horticulture

agent, a DNR Forest Health Specialist or by emailing the Dept. of

Ag at DATCPEmeraldAshBorer@wisconsin.gov. You can also learn

more about EAB at one of the many websites devoted to this

devasting insect. Wisconsin’s website is a very good reference for

all - http://emeraldashborer.wi.gov; another good one is -

www.emeraldashborer.info.

For any questions, concerns or comments

on these or any other forestry related topics,

please contact the City Forester

at 339-8362.

The It Starts in Parks Messages

ACHIEVEMENT…It Starts in Parks

Big achievements in life start with small successes. Like learning how to be part of a team. Or figuring out that excellence comes from a daily

commitment of time and hard work. Wisconsin’s parks give children a chance to learn those life lessons, to experience success early, and to

dream big. Parks build future leaders by giving youth the opportunity to lead. Personal achievement. It Starts in Parks.

A sense of COMMUNITY...It Starts In Parks

What transforms a crowd into a community? A chance for people to connect. Parks provide that chance. Wisconsin's parks are where lifetime

friendships are formed, where the gap between generations is bridged, where people discover what they have in common. How do you grow a

hometown with a sense of community? It Starts in Parks.

CONSERVATION of our natural treasures…It Starts in Parks

Air. Water. Land. These are our greatest natural treasures. Yet, a growing population threatens the quantity and quality of these vital resources.

Conserving green spaces and waterways for the generations to come is crucial for our very survival. Wisconsin’s parks hold a key. Preserving

what’s precious. It Starts in Parks.

ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT…It Starts in Parks

Parks offer the perfect venue for community and regional events -- tournaments, concerts, exhibitions, food festivals -- that draw visitors and

new dollars into our backyard. A vibrant, growing community. It Starts in Parks.

Good HEALTH… It Starts in Parks

Physical activity is the key to maintaining a healthy body weight, preventing disease and feeling better. A growing body of research shows that

physically active adults and children are less prone to obesity, diabetes, heart disease – even depression. Wisconsin’s parks offer a wide range

of free and low-cost opportunities to get out and play. Physical activity and good health. It Starts in Parks.

Ties to our HERITAGE...It Starts in Parks

One step brings you back in time to the days of European exploration and the various Indian tribes that populated our state. Whether we were

born and raised on the Wisconsin peninsula, or just moved in yesterday, our rich heritage shapes who we are as Wisconsinites and makes us

proud to call Wisconsin our home. Finding our shared heritage. It Starts in Parks.

Respect for NATURE…It Starts in Parks

Whether it’s feeling the sun on your face, learning how things grow or enjoying the awe-inspiring beauty of a summer’s day, nature’s innovation

sustains us from the inside out. Spending time outside reminds us of our unique place in the world. A connection to nature. It Starts in Parks.

appreciation of history and place, respect for nature. How do you weave strangers into citizens? It Starts in Parks.
