TREE PROGRAM

HELP SAVE THE ASH TREES OF RAMSEY HILL

Tree Fund Ramsey Hill

TREE FUND

The RHA board agreed to fund an additional $5000 to our 2023 Parks and Garden budget to aid in the replacement of any park tree that would need to be removed by the city regardless of type.

If you would like to contribute to that effort, click on the donor button below and make sure to select "Tree Fund" when directing your donation.

  • Fight climate change

  • Maintain shade while abating air conditioning/cooling costs

  • Ensure the beautiful tree canopy of our streets remain

  • Preserve home values

 

ACT BEFORE NOVEMBER 30, 2022

 

As many of you are aware, the city of St. Paul plans to remove 340+ ash trees beginning January 1, 2023. Both diseased and healthy trees will be removed completely changing the streetscape and canopy throughout the neighborhood. How can you help? By treating a healthy tree, you can expect that tree to live an additional 40-50 years. Many of you who have an ash tree on your boulevard have been contacted by the city but were not presented with treatment options. A door hanger campaign paid for by RHA will soon be delivered by RHA volunteers highlighting what each property owner must do to secure a treatment plan.

 

For as little as $90 a year (exact pricing depends on Provider and diameter of tree) your tree can be treated

Once contracted with a Provider, they obtain a permit from the city to treat your tree

A list of approved Providers can be obtained by calling the City of St. Paul at 651.266.8989

The city remains responsible for trimming and removal if/when necessary

 

Without endorsement, 3 examples of Providers include:

Rainbow Tree Care           952.922.3810

St. Croix Savatree             952.881.3779

 

A special thanks to the following neighbors for their ongoing efforts to champion this cause.
