Emerald Ash Borer Confirmed in Fort Atkinson
In early July 2014, Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) was confirmed in the northwest side of the City of Fort Atkinson. Although we have just recently confirmed EAB in our community, visible signs of an infestation generally do not become apparent for several years.

The City's Street Trees
In the City's right-of-ways, we have 5,401 trees. These trees are commonly referred to as terrace trees or street trees. Currently, we have 1,243 ash trees which accounts for 23% of our total street tree population.

City's Tree Inventory and EAB Information
On August 5, 2014 the Street Trees Inventory and EAB information was presented to the City Council. The information describes our street tree inventory, ash tree status, EAB strategy, chemical treatments, ash tree removal and replanting costs.
