Tree removal will shut down Como Park's cross-country ski trails beginning Jan. 18. However, downhill skiing and the ski center will remain open.
 
Parks and Recreation expects to remove 150 ash trees and about 15 other dead trees on the Como Golf Course. Initial work begins Jan. 18, and heavy equipment moves in on Monday Jan. 22. Work could last as long as three weeks. The work at Como is part of the nearly 600 trees the department will remove from city parkland this year -- almost all of them ash trees.
 
In addition, Saint Paul Forestry will cut down more than 1,600 boulevard ash trees in 2018. That includes nearly 60 more trees in District 10 that are infested with emerald ash borer. The trees are all the ash still standing on:
  • Alameda from Wheelock south to Maryland
  • Alameda from Hoyt south to Arlington
  • Arlington from Victoria east to St. Albans
  • Maywood from Cottage south to Wheelock
  • Nebraska near Alameda
Crews began removing trees in Highland Park on Jan. 8, and will move onto other parts of the city as winter progresses. See the map
