No, City Manager Wally Bobkiewicz says, it’s just the equipment a contractor for the city uses to inoculate elm trees against Dutch Elm disease.

The city is spending $697,305 this year to inject about 2,290 parkway and other publicly owned elms with a chemical called Arbotect 20-S that dramatically reduces the chance they’ll fall victim to the disease.

Nels Johnson Tree Experts, Inc. of Evanston is doing the work.
