The Superior City Council approved a plan on Tuesday to remove and replace thousands of Ash trees in response to the Emerald Ash Borer infestation.
The 3,000 ash trees will be replaced with native species, and it will cost the city $70,000 according to City Councilor Mike Herrick. He said councilors felt the plan was better and cheaper than treating the trees and prolonging the infestation.
Herrick said the plan will be implemented over six years.
