2020 Ash Tree Removal Program

The town has successfully removed over 300  ash trees of the 450 recognized since 2018 along the Town easement between the sidewalk and roads. The town will continue using a combination of town forces and contractors this year removing ash trees throughout spring,  summer and fall and estimate about 150 trees left to be removed.  We will continue to target and work neighborhood to neighborhood rather that tackling individual request.

We are working our way through it to the best of our abilities with the resources that we have available to us.  As much as we would like to, we cannot remove all of remaining trees at once while maintaining the other priorities of the Department.  We appreciate our residents understanding and patience as we work through this.

Thank you

If you have any questions, or are interested in a replacement tree, please contact the Public Works Department at 247-6100.
