Memorial Park Tree Removal

This spring, a large Oak tree in Memorial Park fell during high winds. The Borough’s arborist was called in to the site, and determined that the tree was suffering from root rot, a fungus that infected the tree and caused the roots to become spongy. The roots, therefore, were not working to anchoring the tree into the ground. The arborist further informed the Borough that five other trees in Memorial Park were also suffering from extensive root rot, and could fall during high winds.

At the request of the Shade Tree Committee, a second arborist was brought in to assess the trees and provide a second opinion. It was confirmed that all five trees did have extensive root rot, which is a “cancer” for trees. Given the location of these trees next to busy roadways, the situation became a public safety concern. The trees are being removed to prevent them from falling onto the roadways.

Edgewood Borough Council values our urban forest, and is committed to its maintenance. Council will be working with the Shade Tree Committee to create a plan for replacement of the trees in Memorial Park. If you have any questions about Edgewood’s trees, please contact the Borough office at (412) 242-4824.

Alcosan and You: Working Together for Clean Water

Learn more about the Allegheny County Sanitary Authority’s plan to expand its North Side wastewater treatment plant at two public meetings on Tuesday, January 30, one at 10:30 a.m. and the other at 6:30 p.m.

Both meetings will take place at ALCOSAN, 3300 Preble Avenue, Pittsburgh, 15233. A shuttle will be available to transport people to both sessions, beginning at 9:30 a.m. for the 10:30 a.m. meeting and at 5:30 p.m. for the 6:30 p.m. meeting. The shuttle will circulate to both Port Authority T-stations on the North Side, and it will return riders to those stops after the meetings.

The content of the meetings will be identical. Please register in advance so everyone can be accommodated although registration is not mandatory.

The plant expansion is a fundamental component of ALCOSAN’s Clean Water Plan. ALCOSAN is bound by agreements with federal, state and county regulators to reduce the volume of untreated overflows into the region’s rivers and streams. Doing so is required, and it is also the right thing to do.

Please join us to learn more about this important plan for the future.
