Thanks to the Elizabeth Community Association, tree banding kits are available to ECA residents at a fraction of what they would cost at a hardware store. The cost for supplies through the ECA is $1 per foot. The price includes roofing paper, batting, Tanglefoot and wrapping supplies. This year, The ECA tree banding materials will be sold on Oct. 30 at 2217 E. 5th St. Cash and checks will be accepted. Please make checks out to the ECA.
If you cannot pick up your supplies on this date or if you miss the deadline, email trees4elizabeth@Gmail.com.
