Emerald Ash Borers Found at Fort Snelling Golf Course
Trees at a Twin Cities golf course will need to be taken down after emerald ash borer was discovered there.
There are more than 80 ash trees at the Fort Snelling Golf Course.
The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board tells KSTP they found about a dozen ash trees in the southwest corner of the course infected with the invasive beetle.
It's the first new infestation of emerald ash borer in Minnesota this year, and it's in an area of Minneapolis that hasn't seen infestations before.
The park board tells us they will remove the infected trees sometime this fall to prevent the beetle from spreading to more trees.
