Remove and replace ash trees

$3,288 grant

20 volunteer hours

10 trees planted

Ash trees are susceptible to the emerald ash borer, which kills the tree over a few years. In this project, Friends of Blue Mounds State Park supported efforts to remove vulnerable ash trees and replace them with a diversity of trees native to the area and resilient to climate change.
