Property Maintenance on average mows 47 acres of right of way during their weekly schedules. That is comparable to almost 43 football fields every week!
In the News
In recent months, many may have noticed a large number of trees being removed from City owned property's such as the Greeneway Trail and other public right of way. A certain species of tree, the Hackberry, or Sugarberry depending on location, is in decline.
North Augusta, along with other cities, is part of a research area by the US Forestry Service to determine what exactly is causing the death of these trees.
Potential causes include the presence of a Hypoxylon fungus on the trees and a species of insect, Agrilus, which lays eggs masses on the bark of the tree. Agrilus larva hatch then bore into the tree leaving a black residue on the entry point. While these symptons are present on dying hackberrys, it is not confirmed that they are the root cause of the decline.
The City will continue to monitor City owned property and public right of way for potential hazards. This page will be updated as more information becomes available.

Help keep North Augusta litter free:
- Keep a litter bag in your vehicle.
- Put your garbage out for collection as close to pickup time as possible.
