Equinox service to remember black walnut trees

Many of the landmark trees that line Russell Boulevard west of the Davis city limits were cut down in mid-August due to a fungus known as thousand cankers disease that is killing black walnut trees across many Western states. The trees had started dropping limbs, sometimes as big as 10 inches in diameter. Courtesy photo

All who love trees are invited to a special memorial service on Sunday, the first day of fall.

“It is appropriate to gather on the autumnal equinox to honor the black walnut trees that once flourished along Russell Boulevard, just west of the city line,” said Judy Moores, who organized the service. “Just as the seasons have their fullness and passing, so too, have trees.”

Plans for the service include a brief history of the Russell trees, time to mourn their loss and time to celebrate the contribution of all trees to our lives. Those who live in the area will share plans for replanting trees on Russell.

Meri Superak will play her Native American flute. Eldridge Moores and Barbara Meixner will mourn the trees with Gabriel Faure’s Elegie for cello and piano. Sonja Brodt will celebrate trees and nature with a dance, “Sweet and Low.” Superak, who composed the song for voice and guitar, will accompany Brodt.

The event, sponsored by the Green Sanctuary Committee of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Davis, is scheduled from 7 to 8 p.m. Sunday at the church, 27074 Patwin Road in rural West Davis. Doors will open at 6:40 p.m. Light refreshments will be served after the service.

While the event is free and open to the public, donations to Tree Davis to cover the costs of replanting will be welcome. Those who come are encouraged to walk or bike if at all possible. The Green Sanctuary Committee is a Cool Davis Partner.

For more information, call Judy Moores at 530-756-4639.
