City to begin cutting down ash trees soon

November 8, 2010

Columbia City will be cutting down more than 200 ash trees around the city, hopefully beginning in the next few months.
The city’s Board of Works and Safety discussed the tree issue at its regular weekly meeting Friday.
According to Mayor Jim Fleck’s office, the project is being undertaken to combat and avoid the consequences of the Emerald Ash Borer, an invasive beetle that compromises the integrity of the tree and creates potential danger of collapse.
“One of those trees coming through the roof would far exceed what it would cost to remove the tree in the first place,” Fleck said.
