time to take the sweaters off the trees Columbus

It is time to take the sweaters off the trees Columbus!   Winter is finally over, the daffodils are blooming, it is time to take tree sweaters off.  Arborists recommend tree sweaters be removed immediately as it is getting warm quickly in Central Ohio.

Tree wearing sweater 2010

In an effort to make winter more comfortable some Columbus trees wore sweaters through the winter of  '2009 - 2010.' Pictured wearing a colorful sweater is a tree on Cherryfield Ave., Columbus Ohio 43235 in Worthington Hills. 

Nature Blogger Tom Arbour was instrumental in raising awareness to Columbus residents last fall that we were in for a hard winter and that  a sweater could make a difference for a Central Ohio tree. In a Tree Sweater test program trees in the  Worthington area in northern Franklin County wore sweaters, this past winter.  The trees wearing  sweater were primarily in the Worthington Hills area, west of the Olentangy River.  The wooded ravines in Worthington Hills  posed the largest challenge for tree sweatering.

The future of tree sweaters in Columbus

Depending on what is in store for us next winter meteorologist Jym Ganahl plans to expand tree sweater awareness in 2010.  Ganahl will use Twitter and Facebook in addition to his televised weather segments  to get the word out to Central Ohioans that sweatering a tree is the responsible thing to do when a cold winter is in the forecast.

For now... Tree Sweaters

Winter is over.  The forsythia is in bloom and while we could have three more snows  Ganahl joins experts in  saying it is time to take those sweaters off Central Ohio trees and store them for later this year. Stay tuned to the Channel 4 website for details on the 2010 Tree Sweater program and it's future.
