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 removals throughout Como Park are complete - check back for information about stump grinding.
  • Ash removals throughout Prosperity Heights Park are complete - stump grinding shall be completed by 4/15/2019.
  • Continued Ash removals throughout city parks are planned for 2019 - details will be posted here as they are available.

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.
