Spot treatments in parks beginning June 22

Parks staff will begin spot treatments with organic herbicide Districtwide the week of June 22. Treatments will continue through early July.  We will only be using organic herbicides, none of which contain glyphosate. Treatment areas include tree rings, landscape beds, paver paths, fence lines and parking lot areas. Playgrounds are never treated with any herbicide. All staff making the applications are licensed by the State of Illinois and follow the product label and licensing guidelines. Although the product is organic patrons should stay off treated surfaces until they are dry.
