Saint Paul’s Forestry division intends to cut down 110 more boulevard ash trees in District 10 this year. The trees are among more than 1,000 Forestry will cut down across the city in 2019, mostly the result of emerald ash borer infestation.

In District 10, the toll is nearly twice as high as it was in 2018. The total does not include the 220 trees the Parks department took down in Como Regional Park this winter. Boulevard trees being taken down in District 10 in 2019 are on:

  • Alameda between Cottage and Wheelock
  • Avon between Arlington and Lakeview
  • California between Avon and Milton
  • Cottage between Dale and Grotto
  • Fisk between Hoyt and Idaho
  • Iowa between Fisk and Grotto
  • Nevada west of Grotto

You can view the city's map of exactly where the trees will be removed. Tree removal is scheduled to begin Jan. 22; timelines for stumping and replanting remain up in the air.

The city is also trying to preserve about 125 ash trees in District 10 through a treatment program. Trees being treated are on:

  • Albert between Frankson and Nebraska
  • Almond west of Snelling
  • Breda between Hamline and Snelling
  • Como Ave. south of the lake
  • Cottage between Avon and Grotto
  • Grotto south of Maryland
  • Montana between Dunlap and Lexington
  • Pascal between Arlington and Frankson
  • St. Albans between California and Iowa
