Public Meeting Will Be Held To Discuss The Structured Removal of Ash Trees
Friday, February 12, 2010 12:00 PM

The City of Saint Paul Forestry Unit began working throughout the city in early February to reduce Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) populations overall by removing declining ash trees (the plan also calls for removed ash trees to be stumped and re-planted with a different variety of tree within a reasonable time frame).

This program, one which is supported by the MN Dept of Agriculture and aforementioned current research, may directly affect your neighborhood.  Therefore, a community meeting has been scheduled for residents to learn more about this management strategy in more detail, and what exactly it means for the urban forest of Saint Paul.
