Ash Borer cost could be $1.5 million
(MCT) — Highland Park officials will soon be faced with paying for a program to remove more than 6,000 public ash trees that are expected to fall prey to the emerald ash borer that has infested the area.
City Forester Joe O'Neill said Highland Park has 4,125 ash trees of various varieties on public parkway, plus as many as 2,000 more on publicly maintained areas such as the bicycle trail. A five-year projection shows it would cost $1.52 million to remove infected trees and plant replacements.
