Lakeville Discount Program for Emerald Ash Borer Prevention
EAB was confirmed in Lakeville in October 2017. Like most Minnesota cities, Lakeville has an abundance of ash trees growing on public property and in parks. As a result, the City has partnered with Rainbow Treecare to treat public ash trees. This partnership also offers a city-wide discount through 2021 for any privately owned trees in Lakeville.

You can protect your ash tree for 20 years for less than the cost to remove and replace it.
If you have an ash tree, now is the time to decide what to do. Ash trees can either be protected or removed. Lakeville is encouraging residents to treat large, well-placed, healthy private ash trees as part of an EAB treatment program.
Considerations for treatment:
- Is your tree greater than 10” in diameter and in good physical condition?
- Is your tree competing with other trees or infrastructure?
- Does your tree show no more than 30% of canopy decline if infestation is suspected?
- In areas with EAB populations, trunk injections have achieved a higher success rate than soil-applied treatments.
Most importantly, treating an ash tree is more cost-effective than removal. In addition, you maintain the tree benefits and value of a mature tree to your property!
