Sustainable Eden Prairie is an ongoing effort focusing on education and implementation of sustainable practices to protect the environment and natural resources our community enjoys.
Building upon the success of the 20-40-15 initiative, the City is leading by example and providing a foundation for residents and businesses to carry out sustainable practices in four areas — energy, landscape, waste and water.
Discounted EAB Treatments Available
Citywide group discount available to treat healthy ash trees for EAB.
In 2017 emerald ash borer (EAB) was confirmed in Eden Prairie. As part of its multiyear EAB management plan, the City is treating or removing ash trees on public property. Removed trees are being replaced with a diverse pallet of species at one-and-a half times the rate of removal.
The City’s plan also includes promoting proper management of ash trees on private property, which includes treating trees at least 10 inches in diameter and in good physical condition. Discounted EAB treatment rates from Rainbow Treecare are available to residents through 2020. Learn more about this program at rainbowtreecare.com/Eden-Prairie.
