Officer Treichel always keeps her eye out for promising young recruits... and Kaleb fit the bill! 😊 She gave him a junior police badge to have until he's ready for the real thing.

Beech bark disease has been found near Fairfax County. The devastating disease is caused by an insect and a fungus. Heavy infestations may make the tree appear to have been rolled in powdered sugar. In later stages of the disease, large patches of bark may be covered in small red dots.
Report infestations to Fairfax County Urban Foresters at 703-324-1770, TTY 711, or pestmail@fairfaxcounty.gov. To prevent the spread of beech bark disease and other invasive pests, burn your firewood where you buy it. Don’t transport it. Fairfax County Government
