Montana Ash Hazard Tree Removal Grant
December 30, 2020
ProRover is the certified arborist who received the contract for
the DNRC Montana Ash Hazard Tree Removal. He has been working in the Roundup community for the past week on the 23 ASH trees that were deemed the most hazardous. These trees were selected by the tree inventory of public trees which was completed this past fall by a state certified arborist. These stats are on file at the City Office.
This grant was in preparation for the Emerald Ash Borer that may be arriving within two years and will decimate the ash trees. Seventy percent of the trees on Roundup's boulevards and parks are ash trees.
Phase 2 of this grant calls for diversity in replanting these trees. Different species are being considered from the list provided by foresters in the area.
