Over the next several weeks, City contracted crews will be working in the Ward 3 community to remove Ash trees infested with Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) in Cherry Hill, Kennedy and Hickory Green Parks. City staff will start marking trees for removal next week. All trees scheduled for removals will be marked with an orange X.
Crews will be working Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. After the initial tree removal, crews will remove the tree stumps, repair the ground with topsoil and reseed. All works will be weather dependant.
All City-owned park trees removed due to EAB will be replanted over the next several years. This is due to the high number of trees removed from parks, the short planting season and weather conditions.
