If this is a plan, please keep in mind that this should be done in the shape of a donut, keeping the mulch about 3-4 inches away from the trunk of the tree and a depth of 4 inches is sufficient. Those serving as volunteers on the 'tilltap Tree Buggers, with their goal being to make our small city a more beautiful place are: Chairper- son, Joe Lucas; co-chairperson, Pamela Erlen- bush; Recorder, Margaret Schrishuhn; Janet Maxheimer; Scott Faith; Kelly Coppinger; and Mayor Jim Fuhrer.

The larger projects are put out for bids, as the funds are available. We would like to eventually satisfy all the requirements for Mt.. Pulaski to become a "Tree City USA. To date, we have currently met at least half of these. Margaret Schrishulm
