Greentree Adopt-a-Park Tree Program* 2022

Since 2016, six Ash trees – 3 in Norman Clayton Park and 3 in Sunridge Park – have been treated every three years to prevent infestation by the Emerald Ash Borer. The trees are prominent fixtures in both parks providing ample shade for the main park area and pavilion at Norman Clayton Park and shade for the playground area in Sunridge Park. Without this treatment in 2022, these magnificent shade trees will die within 4-6 years. They cannot be replaced quickly.

The current treatment expires in August. Ms. Sheahan of the GTNA Board has contacted Capitol City Tree Experts, Inc. about treating the 6 trees and we are on their schedule for treatment in May or June.  Capital City Tree Experts has treated these trees in the past.

Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to save our Greentree Park Ash trees.  Questions - contact Helen Sheahan at

Donation by check can be made by mailing a check made out to Madison Parks Foundation for the total amount and a separate note which specifies the park or parks and the amount(s) to:

At the Madison Parks Foundation there are 2 accounts with funds earmarked for treating the Ash trees. One is for Norman Clayton Park and the other is for Sunridge Park. Be sure to specify to which park the donation should be directed. 

A 5% administrative fee is charged for a donation and an additional 3% processing fee is charged for a credit-card donation as this is what the credit card company charges the Foundation. The Madison Parks Foundation is a tax-exempt 501(c) (3) organization and your gift is tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.

*The Greentree Adopt-a-Park Tree Program is sponsored by the Greentree Neighborhood Association in cooperation with the Madison Parks Foundation.
