Infested Elm tree removal in State Collage

Due to the diseased elm yellows, we removed five large elm trees near The Rathskeller and two more around the corner, in the 300 block of East College Avenue. We also removed an eighth tree Friday from College Heights, on North Allen Street. Elm yellows, spread by the tiny leafhopper insect, attacks a tree’s “inner bark” stopping nutrient flow and causing the leaves to yellow and the tree to die.
