MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — More than 800 tree stumps that were knocked over in the June 21 storm in Minneapolis will be extracted over the next month or so.

Ralph Sievert is the forestry director for the Minneapolis Park Board.

“They are starting to the north and northeast, here just to kind of a rhythm, and kind of get into the swing of things. Then when they get into the area that was hit hard in the southwest going across the south part of the city, they’ll be able to move real fast,” Sievert said.

Sievert said about 300 tree stumps damaged the sidewalks, which they will repair after the trees are gone.
