The City of Winona is seeking 300 property owners who will volunteer to have a boulevard ash tree removed and replaced by a tree of another variety.
The city will remove ash trees and provide and plant new trees at no cost to the adjacent property owner. Property owners can choose from a selection of 12 different types of trees.
If you are interested in replacing an ash tree on the boulevard contact City Councilman Paul Douglas at 457-8255.
City staff will also visit your site to determine if your trees are ash trees and if they are good candidates to be replaced.
The Emerald Ash Borer has been identified within 10 miles of Winona, and has been known to have killed millions of ash trees in eastern states.....
