The Emerald Ash Borer has been found within the City of Superior and officials have deliberated about what to do about it.

A press release from City Forester Mary Morgan outlines the following updates about the issue:

  • The Superior City Council will decide how the City should respond to the infestation of the City’s boulevard ash trees by the Emerald Ash Borer on Tuesday, October 15th at 6:30 p.m.
  • The City Forester has recommended removing all the ash as a pre-emptive measure to protect citizens from the public safety hazard that the ash will pose as they fail over the next two to four years. The City will replant a different species as resources become available. Citizens may treat boulevard ash (with conditions) at their own expense with a free tree permit issued by the City. Please call 715-395-7279 to get the permit.
  • Treated ash trees will not be removed by City crews unless/until they fail and become a hazard.
  • The public is invited to the meeting to provide feedback on the proposed plan.

For more information, citizens can call Mary Morgan at 715-395-7279 for more information.
