What species of replacement tree will the Village Forester plant?
No ash tree species will be planted because no variety is resistant to EAB. Trees selected from those listed in Appendix I - Acceptable Tree Species (PDF) published in the village Urban Forestry Guide.

Trees selected would be resistant to EAB or other known infestations or diseases. Trees selected will depend on the mature tree size, size of planting space and environmental factors. The selected tree species, variety and size will depend on availability and cost of nursery stock.

Plan to plant a diversity of tree species to minimize impacts to inventory caused by known and/or future infestations or diseases.
