You’re here because you’ve received a letter about the removal of an Ash tree near your property. We’d like to go over a few facts to help you understand what is happening and why.
The Emerald Ash Borer is an invasive species that can cause trees to become weak and brittle once it has infested Ash trees. The affected Ash trees become unstable, so the trees themselves present a hazard. Rather than treat them every 2 years, the City of Omaha has elected to remove the trees.
You do have the choice of treating the tree; however, you will be responsible for the cost of that treatment, which consists of a trunk injection. Please contact us for a free estimate if you are interested.
The infected Ash tree is the public hazard, not the stump. The City of Omaha has elected to remove the trees but not the stump. You can elect to have the stump ground down; however, you will be responsible for the cost of the stump grinding.
