SOLE is having a planning meeting Wednesday, April 27th at 7:00 at 412 NE Hazelfern Place. We will gear up for this year's inoculation and hope to inoculate 50 trees. This is our 4th year of operation. Donations are gladly accepted; The cost to protect 1 Elm for 3 years from Dutch Elm Disease costs approximately $150 per tree.

The Laurelhurst Neighborhood is home to about 220 Elms which were planted about 100 years ago; Elms can live up to 500 years. Since SOLE began in 2008, 104 trees have been inoculated against Dutch Elm Disease, a fungus that is spread by beetle, through the root system and through the air.

The Heathman Hotel is once again offering an overnight package to SOLE. Anyone donating more than $25 will automatically be entered in the drawing and have a chance to win for every increment of $25.

Donations may be made to "Save Our Laurelhurst Elms" and sent to 412 NE Hazelfern Place in Portland. If interested in volunteering or finding out more information, please email Jill Punches at punches1@msn.com or Doug Lovelace at doug@statestore.com. Thank you for your support!
