Ottawa looking to remove more dead ash trees

Posted by wlpo on July 8, 2015

The city of Ottawa is now taking bids from companies who specialize in taking down dead or dying ash trees.

City Engineer Dave Noble says treatments to try and save ash trees from the Emerald Ash Borer have been largely unsuccessful. He says there are dead or dying ash trees all over town including one right in front of city hall. Noble says some ash trees that were planted not long ago will have to be cut down.

Bids to remove the dead or dying trees are due by Monday, July 20th. The city will pay only to remove trees on public property.
