The City of Brooklyn Park and the Minnesota Department of Agriculture have both confirmed the presence of Emerald Ash Borer on at least one tree in the city.
A release from the city said a private arborist working for a local tree company located the tree on private property at a business in the 3900 block of 85th Avenue.
The release said the City Council adopted an Emerald Ash Borer Preparedness and Management plan in 2011. The city has removed smaller, unhealthy or hazardous ash trees and has begun a two-year ongoing treatment cycle for larger ash trees.
Private property owners with ash trees in the city are encouraged to consider plans for treatment or removal.
