Home » Public Meeting for Removal of Ash Trees Thursday, October 27, 2022 a 7 pm CDT

Fort Pierre residents are invited to a public meeting on Thursday, October 27, at 7 pm at the Sutley Senior Center in Fort Pierre to hear more about tree removal planned to mitigate an anticipated Emerald Ash Borer infestation.  Dr. John Ball, SDSU’s Professor of Agronomy, Horticulture & Plant Science, and the recognized “tree expert” for South Dakota, will be the featured speaker.

            While no Emerald Ash Borers have been found in this area yet, scientists such as Dr. Ball have a recommended protocol for mitigating the damage to private and public property.  The City of Fort Pierre and the Fort Pierre Arbor Board have completed a citywide tree inventory to identify all ash trees on public property, and are in the process of establishing a protocol for selection of specimen ash trees for chemical treatment.
