Fairview trees will be removed due to the Emerald Ash Borer | Home & Garden
You will be contacted by the Illuminating Company if the ash tree(s) on your property pose a threat to you, your property, the public and/or your electric lines. The Illuminating Company will remove the trees at no cost to the property owner.
Wood will be left in manageable sizes, 18-24" in length, for your use or disposal. Stumps will be left on the property. If you choose not to have the trees removed, any trees identified will be pruned to meet clearance standards.
Ash trees in the vicinity of electric lines pose a threat to public safety and electric reliability. The Illuminating Company has started an initiative to remove ash trees in the vicinity of electric lines during fall/winter 2012.
In 2006, the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) was discovered in Cuyahoga County and, by 2010, it had moved east into Ashtabula, Geauga and Lake Counties. EAB is an invasive insect that destroys ash trees. Trees infested with EAB will start a slow decline and then can die very quickly. This causes trees to become brittle and start to lose their limbs.
If you have any questions about the program, you may call the Illuminating Company at 440-463-8161.
