Watertown's Ash Trees At Risk

The City of Watertown will be offering Ash Tree Injection for a discounted price.  The City has contracted with Wachtel Tree Science for a second year to perform the injections.  Residents interested in saving their ash tree can pick up an application at three locations; City Hall, Senior Center, or the Street Department starting on May 29, 2017.  The deadline for the application will be June 30, 2017.

Here are some highlights regarding the treatment program:

  • Property owners will receive a $20.00 credit per tree treated for up to four trees maximum per property.  This is a one-time offer.
  • The minimum diameter (see attached application for how to measure diameter) is 10”.
  • Wachtel Tree Science, Inc. will contact each qualified applicant to secure a signed treatment contract.  They will also be responsible for billing the client.
  • Funding for this project allows up to 350 ash trees to be treated.  Once that number is reached, the program will be closed off.
  • The deadline for application submittal is June 30, 2017.
