Hearing is set by city council to revise tree ordinance


WILLMAR -- Private property owners would be required to remove diseased trees, trees infected with emerald ash borer, or dead or hazardous trees under a revised ordinance that will be considered by the Willmar City Council.

The public will have a chance to comment on the revised ordinance during a council hearing on Aug.16.

The ordinance is being revised to combat the threat of the emerald ash borer, a non-native beetle discovered in the Detroit, Mich., area in 2002.
