Elm trees on Indian Hill to be trimmed, removed
The mature American Elms that line Indian Hill Boulevard are considered a heritage grove in the city of Claremont. These trees have been maintained for decades with the goal of preserving their iconic appearance. Some of these trees have declined due to age, drought, insects, disease and injury, according to city staff.
In response to the declining health of these trees, 43 trees are scheduled to be trimmed and eight are scheduled to be removed sometime in March. Those trees scheduled for removal will be replaced with American Elms that have been raised at a local nursery for the preservation of the heritage grove. Replacement will take place immediately following the removal.
The Tree Committee and Community and Human Services Commission have reviewed the work plan. A longterm preservation plan will be brought to the commissions in the spring. For information, contact Community Services at (909) 399-5431.
