What can property owners do about EAB on private property?
  • Monitor ash trees for EAB - look for cracks in the bark, excessive woodpecker damage and watch for dying branches near the top of ash trees
  • Report suspected cases of EAB to the tree inspector immediately! There is no charge associated with calling the City to have a tree inspector look at an ash tree suspected of having an EAB infestation.
  • Establish a relationship with a tree service company that has a Certified Arborist and a Minnesota Certified tree Inspector on staff, and carries adequate general liability and worker compensation insurance
  • Remove ash trees now, and replant other species in advance of EAB infestation
