Ash Tree Removal and Planting

Throughout the next several months, UW Arborists, with help from local tree removal contractors, will be removing select ash trees throughout University Apartments. These trees are going to die and become dangerous as a result of the emerald ash borer. To learn more about the effects of the emerald ash borer, please see the following article from Wisconsin’s Department of Natural Resources.

There is loud noise associated with this work and some of the work will take place near buildings, parking lots, sidewalks, and roadways. Some residents may be asked to move their vehicles or personal property stored outside. Please stay away from these areas when crews are working.

We will be planting many new trees and shrubs to replace the trees that are removed. Please do not let children or animals play near the new plants as these new plants will be delicate and can be easily damaged.
