EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) - The removal of infected ash trees is underway in Eau Claire’s Owen Park.

The city says the dead and damaged trees infected with Emerald Ash Borer pose a danger due to the threat of falling branches.

The parks & forestry division has been proactively removing ash trees throughout the city’s parks and greenspaces since 2013 to slow the spread of Emerald Ash Borer.

The ash trees are being replaced with various other species of trees.
