At the time of this recommendation there were 924 birch trees within the city limits and it would take 10 years or more if the city were to eliminate the birch monoculture that exists along city streets. The recommendation from the department was to reduce the number of birch trees to reach a “tolerable” level of infestation complaints rather than removing all of the trees without an evaluation period. The recommendation included focusing on areas that historically have had the greatest numbers of aphid complaints. In 2013, City Council approved Ordinance    Not available Not available
