Half-Day Closure of Windsor’s Main Park Scheduled for June 25

American Elm

Windsor’s Main Park, located at 300 Locust St., will be temporarily closed Tuesday, June 25, from 5 a.m. to 11 a.m., weather permitting, so that the historic American elm trees located within the park can be treated for European Elm Scale.  

European Elm Scale is a common threat to large-leaf American elms and the Town of Windsor Forestry Division is treating the mature trees in an effort to thwart losing them to this common Colorado tree disease. Among the first signs of the disease are premature yellowing of leaves and dying tree branches. Because treatment includes chemical application of the product Distance applied by a company licensed by the Colorado Department of Agriculture, the park and its playgrounds will be closed temporarily.

A Tree City, USA ® since 1982, Windsor is a community that values the importance of urban forestry. For questions or comments please contact Town Forester Ken Kawamura at 970-674-2440 or email at To learn more about the Town of Windsor’s Forestry Division, visit
