Forestry

Please refrain from planting any Ash trees, the city has more than is recommended by the ND Forestry Service.  The Emerald Ash Borer is also being found in trees in ND. This insect will kill any trees it infests. Recommended trees and planting instructions are attached.

The Arboretum located along the Maple River has a wide variety of trees and shrubs with applicable information on a kiosk soon to be installed on the vacant concrete pad across from the community center.  Also included on the kiosk will be historical data for the City of Mapleton.

Trees are an integral part of the Community Forestry Program in that funds raised help to care for and plant additional trees.  Many new trees have been planted in the last few years so the selection is good.
