Emerald Ash Borer

emeraldashborer

More than 40 million ash trees have died or are dying from emerald ash borer beetle attacks in the United States since the beetle's introduction sometime shortly before its discovery in 2002. Early detection of EAB in newly infested trees can prove very difficult, particularly for the lay property or woodland owner as the trees tend to exhibit few, if any, visible external symptoms of infestation. One of the first noticeable signs of infestation is often the presence of unusually abundant uneven holes drilled by woodpeckers as they feed on prepupal larvae. A very clear indication of EAB infestation is the presence of the D-shaped emergence holes chewed through the bark on branches or the trunk by adults when they emerge in the spring. These holes are 1/8 inch (3 mm) in diameter. If the holes are not D-shaped, then they were not caused by EAB (native wood borer emergence holes are round or oval and are much larger, 1/4 inch (6 mm) or larger).

Although this beetle has not yet been found in Irondequoit, it has been spotted in Monroe County. The Town of Irondequoit has completed a survey of all ash trees in the Town's right of way. The Town is not planning to take any action at this time but will meet with residents to discuss their ash trees and infestation management. If residents have a concern about their ash tree(s) or think they may be infected, please contact the Department of Public Works at 336-6033.

Street Trees

The Town currently has an in-house program to trim and remove trees from the Town rights-of-way. The current policy is to remove from the rights-of-way only dead or severely damaged trees that pose an imminent threat to life or property.

In the event that a resident would like to plant a replacement tree in the right-of-way, this may be done by first contacting the Bureau of Public Works for assistance with the selection of appropriate species and planting techniques.

If you are interested in your home being considered for the planting of a new street tree in the right-of-way please fill out our Street Tree Request Form.

Street Lighting

The Town of Irondequoit has several lighting districts that pay for the operation and maintenance of street lighting.

The Town contracts with Rochester Gas & Electric for the operation and maintenance of street lights and poles throughout the Town.

To report a street light outage or to request a repair, please call Rochester Gas & Electric at 1-800-743-2110. The exceptions are the street lights on Pattonwood Drive and Marine Drive, which are maintained by the Town. To report a street light outage or request a repair on Pattonwood or Marine Drives ONLY, please call 336-6090.

Sidewalks

There are over 200 miles of sidewalks in the Town of Irondequoit. Each year the Department of Public Works replaces cracked, heaved, or deteriorated sidewalks in a handful of neighborhoods. Limited resources make it difficult to keep up with aging infrastructure.

If you have any questions or concerns about maintenance or replacement of sidewalks on your street, please contact the Department of Public Works at 585-336-6090.

Sidewalk Snowplowing

The Town plows sidewalks, on streets that are normally plowed, in the winter months. Each year the crews rotate and plow either the even or odd house number side of the street with sidewalks.
