Fitchburg's EAB Management Plan

The city’s fundamental approach for mitigating the adverse impacts to public ash trees from the EAB is guided by the following:

  • The EAB has arrived in Fitchburg and will continue to threaten any untreated ash trees, regardless of location, size, or health condition.
  • The city will utilize information gained from ongoing, vigorous scientific research conducted here and by other municipalities grappling with the EAB.
  • The city aims to minimize damage from the EAB at the lowest cost to the community.
  • The city aims to maintain the aesthetic, economic, and environmental benefits of our urban forest.
