Emerald Ash Borer Plan Will Cost $85K This Year
This is the third year of a 10-year plan designed to prevent the tree disease from spreading to Whitefish Bay.
The Whitefish Bay Village Board will spend nearly $85,000 this year to prevent emerald ash borer from spreading to the village.
On Monday night, trustees awarded a $84,598 contract to Voss Treemendous Tree Service to remove 311 ash trees ranging from seven to 32 inches in diameter. This is the third year of the village's 10-year, $2.3 million plan designed to manage the emerald ash borer tree disease by removing existing ash trees and replacing them with non-ash trees.
