Ash tree stumps are left by Superior city trucks last week along 21st Street. A UWS student has been circulating a petition asking city officials to postpone its ash-removal plan this spring until nesting birds, squirrels and other tree-dependent species have successfully raised their young.The city’s plan, approved in March, includes removing all ash trees on public lands – more than 3,000 trees – in an attempt to stop the spread of the non-native emerald ash borer, which kills ash trees.
