The town of Ralston, population 3000 expects to spend $10,000 a year for the next several years to remove Dutch Elm diseased blighted trees and replace them.

He estimated that 500 to 600 trees on public and private property are dead or dying. In the Ralston City Park, 42 of 292 elm have been taken, and in Oak Park, the disease has taken 58 of 291 trees.
