Tree Health Information

Are leaves falling off your tree in the middle of summer? Is the foliage of the tree off-color or different than it was last year? Are there strange bumps or ragged edges on the tree leaves? Have you noticed an increase in insects or caterpillars on your tree?

Eden Prairie is committed to reduce tree losses through management of pests and diseases. Not all pests and diseases require aggressive sanitation to help control spread to other trees, but those such as Dutch elm disease (DED), oak wilt, and emerald ash borer (EAB) do. Currently the City operates sanitation programs for all three.

If you are concerned about the health of your tree, please call the forestry technician at 952-949-8463.
