Emerald Ash Borer (EAB)

EAB Tree Wrap Awareness Campaign

In partnership with Rainbow Treecare, the P.W. Department will be conducting a public awareness campaign by wrapping approximately 200 ash trees with a green plastic banner. Targeted ash trees will be located in Colvill Park, Bay Point Park and along Historic District boulevards. Rainbow Treecare is offering residents a reduced price of $7 per-inch for EAB insecticide injections to kill the EAB beetle and slow its spread through the community. Residents should contact Rainbow directly at 952-767-6920 or through their website to make arrangements for private treatments.
