EAB found in St. Louis Park; treatment discounts available
In mid-June, the Minnesota Department of Agriculture confirmed the presence of emerald ash borer (EAB) in St. Louis Park. The city has been preparing for this inevitability for the past few years by contracting with Rainbow Treecare to treat public ash trees growing along streets and in parks. To date, 1,100 public ash trees have been treated.
As part of this partnership, a citywide discount is available through 2019 to St. Louis Park homeowners to treat privately owned trees that are at least 10 inches in diameter and in good physical condition. The citywide bulk discount provides homeowners with an affordable option for managing their ash trees for long-term protection. More than 500 private ash trees have been injected so far through this program.
