Emerald Ash Borer

Emergency Quarantine

Emerald ash borer has arrived in Carver County. The Minnesota Department of Agriculture enacted an emergency quarantine to limit the movement of firewood and ash material out of the counties. This will reduce the risk of further spreading the tree-killing insect. Learn more about this tree pest.

Emerald Ash Borer Management Plan

The city has an approved emerald ash borer management plan for ash trees located on street boulevards and public areas. The plan recommends the selective treatment and removal of ash trees over a ten-year period, and the city selected Rainbow Treecare to implement this program.

Rainbow Treecare offers city residents with ash trees on their property the opportunity to participate in this program with a city discount. Visit Rainbow Treecare for complete details.
