Emerald Ash Borer Tree Removal

ermald ash borer

Our public works crew has been putting signs on trees that will be removed due to emerald ash borer in Windsor Heights. Residents who leave nearby will also receive a notification on their door. 

The notification states that "This tree is likely infected with the emerald ash borer and will be removed within the next 90 days pursuant to Windsor Heights Municipal Code Section 151.21(3): “The Superintendent may remove or cause to be removed all trees, shrubs, plants or parts thereof upon the public streets or highways or other City property within the City when removal shall be beneficial to the public peace, health, and safety, or for public improvements or if such trees, shrubs, or plants constitute a public nuisance or are dead or diseased, or detrimental to the growth of adjacent trees, plants, or shrubs growing in the public streets or other City property.” The tree will be removed, the stump ground out, chips and debris will be cleaned up, the hole will be filled, and new grass seed will be put down. If there are not favorable conditions for seeding, we will cover the area in erosion control materials and seed it in the spring. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the work being performed please contact Dalton Jacobus – Public Works Director 515-645-6825 or Bill Goodrich – Public Works Supervisor 515-645-6827."
