The article discusses the development of a web-based cost calculator to be utilized in the projection of management costs and restoration of urban forests, in response to an invasion of emerald ash borer in Indianapolis, Indiana. The study aims to provide an illustration on how a city can use local information in its comparison of management plans. The removal of ash trees and replacement with resistant trees, allowed the restoration of the forest to its initial size after 25 years.
