Hummel Tells of Trees He
Has Cut in Elmwood Park
In connection with a misunder
standing said to have arisen in con
nection with work of the park de
partment in Elmwood park, City Com
missioner Hummel offered the follow
"It might be inferred by some peo
ple from the agitation going on that
all the trees and shrubs in Elmwood
park were or had been cut down.
The fact is, and can lie proven, that
trees or shrubs have been cut
down only where it was absolutely
necessary. It was necessary to cut
down some trees and shrubs in mak
ing preparation for the golf course,
and in one or two cases it was neces
sary to cut down old rotten trees
along the driveways, which were apt
to tumble down at any time. The
work has been in charge of the de
partment landscape architect, Mr
Adams, who is a very capable man in
his line, and I do not think the pub
lic is in any way dissatisfied with the
work that we have done."
