Streets May Close While City Removes Tree Stumps Beginning Sept. 3

The City of Minneapolis will work to remove stumps from trees that fell in last June’s storm.

Streets May Close While City Removes Tree Stumps Beginning Sept. 3

According to a press release issued by the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board, the City will begin removing tree stumps beginning the week of September 3.

The late June storms toppled more than 3,000 park and boulevard trees throughout the City,” park board spokesperson Dawn Sommers said in the release. “More than 2,300 semi truckloads of tree debris was removed from across Minneapolis between June 22 and the end of July.”

Researchers at the University of Minnesota have been working to document why some trees were more prone to tipping over than others. With their study almost complete, the City can now remove the remaining stumps. The removal work will take about four weeks.

The stump removal requires large machinery and may “temporarily close some streets while the work is being done,” according to the release.
