The city of Edina says the Minnesota Department of Agriculture has confirmed that Emerald Ash Borer has been found for the first time in a tree in the city.
An Ash tree on private property was determined last Friday to have been attacked by EAB larvae at some point.
A release from the city says there are an estimated 50,000 ash trees in Edina, most located on private property. Chemical treatments are available to help protect healthy ash trees, or those that have been minimally impacted.
City officials recommend anyone with untreated ash trees on their property to contact an arborist immediately to evaluate their options.
