Emerald ash borer (EAB) is a non-native, invasive insect that attacks and kills ash trees. The first confirmed case of EAB in Minnesota was found in St. Paul in 2009, and it has since spread throughout Ramsey and Hennepin counties. EAB was confirmed in northeast Eden Prairie in April 2017.
Hennepin County is under EAB quarantine by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture, which means the public cannot transport any hardwood from Hennepin County to a non-quarantined county.
To promote proper EAB treatment on private property, the City is offering bulk discounted rates to all Eden Prairie property owners through a contract with Rainbow Treecare. Call 952-767-6920 for more information and to schedule a free consultation.
