Knock Out Rose SurveyThe current Madison Beautification board actively monitors the spread of Rose-Rosette Disease in city-owned landscape plantings. In 2015, a vast number of the city's Knockout rose plantings displayed evidence of the virus and have been tagged for removal by city work crews.
The Beautification Board makes itself available to assist the Mayor in coordinating the replanting of city-owned landscapes that have fallen into decline due to age, disease, abuse or adverse weather conditions.
