Parkland Ash Tree Management

Ash trees to be removed throughout the city’s parklands will be identifiable by having either a green ring around the tree or an X painted at chest height.  The majority of these trees will be removed from mown turf areas (e.g.: in picnic areas, or near play grounds), however some may be removed from wooded areas. 

  • Ash tree removals by contractors continue to progress through various parks across the city. Please contact Forestry Customer Service with any questions. Phone: 651-266-6400 - Email:

There will be ash trees identified in parks throughout the year that need to be removed in addition to the larger removal projects outlined above.
