Workshop on mechanized removal of urban, ash borer-damaged trees

In the wake of the Emerald Ash Borer, many cities will need to remove thousands of street trees  before they become safety hazards. UW-Extension, in cooperation with the UW-Madison Department of Forest and Wildlife Ecology, the WDNR, APHIS and others, is sponsoring a field workshop demonstrating the mechanized removal and processing of urban trees on November 10th and 11th (identical programs each day) in Oak Creek, Wisconsin.

Mechanized removal could save municipalities thousands of dollars in removal costs as the Emerald Ash Borer spreads across the state.
