St. Paul to Remove 500 more Ash trees in Ash Borer War.

| No Comments

In order to get ahead of the emerald ash borer, St. Paul Parks and Recreation will resume removing aged and declining ash trees this month in anticipation of a busy season, the Pioneer Press said.

The goal of the city is to remove 503 trees by spring and replace them with other types like elm and oak trees.

After the summer season, an additional 600 trees will most likely need to be replaced due to the severity of the ash borer migrating.

City officials estimate that nearly 30,000 ash trees line its public boulevards in one of the most livable cities in the nation.
