Oak Wilt Disease
Oak Wilt Disease is a fungus that will quickly kill oak trees. The many large Red Oak trees in our community are especially vulnerable. The Oak Wilt fungus has killed Red Oak trees at neighboring Warren Dunes State Park and Tower Hill Camp Woods. What can you do to help prevent Oak Wilt damage? Absolutely NO TRIMMING OR CUTTING OF RED OAK TREES FROM APRIL 1st to NOVEMBER 1st. Also, REFRAIN FROM USING FIREWOOD SOURCED FROM OUTSIDE SHOREWOOD. (Warren Dunes has banned all firewood not purchased in the park!).
Recycling in Shorewood Hills?
The best way to contain the costs associated with the abundance of glass, paper and plastic on our planet is to extend the life of our landfills by sending recyclables to a recycling center, and not to the landfill. To learn more about recycling in Berrien County go to the Berrien County Website and click on VIEW THE 2018 BERRIEN COUNTY RECYCLING GUIDE.
The easiest most cost efficient process is to schedule recycling pickup. Reliable Disposal (269-465-3773) will pick up recyclables and provide a recycling container at a cost of about $4 per month, less if you pay quarterly or annually. The recyclables are picked up every other week on Wednesday. Don't have that much recyclable material? Share with a neighbor!
Books for a reading anytime!
On the hill up from North Beach, residents Rich and Naomi have graciously put up a little red "library mailbox"--take a book to read, then return it!
