Emerald Ash Borer Workshops
Emerald ash borer (EAB) is a nonnative invasive insect that destroys ash trees and has already killed millions of ash trees in North America. According to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board, EAB will have a huge effect on Minnesota’s landscape. For more information about EAB, visit http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/invasives/terrestrialanimals/eab/index.html
EAB was recently found in Lakewood Cemetery, which means that some of the more than 1,000 ash trees in Linden Hills might be infected now. High value trees can be saved, but many trees will die.
Come to one of two free workshops to learn about options for dealing with this destructive pest: Tuesday, August 27 at 7 p.m. at the Linden Hills Recreation Center, or Saturday, September 21 at 9:30 a.m. at the Pershing Park Recreation Center. Most households in Linden Hills with an ash tree on their property also will receive a letter in early August announcing the workshops.
