What should I do with my ash tree that must be cut down?

To help prevent the spread of EAB, avoid cutting down an unhealthy ash tree May to August unless the wood will be chipped at the site. You can take wood to the compost site on Bench Street during open hours. Ash trees make good firewood and it’s safe to cut and store uncovered if it came from a healthy tree. If the tree was sick, plan to cover and seal the pile while it seasons to prevent the spread of Emerald Ash Borer (EAB).
