Twin Cities Residents - Save Your Ash Tree

Emerald Ash Borer was first found in St. Paul in 2009 and has since spread to every city across the Twin Cities metro area. It is infesting and killing ash trees in your community, and we encourage residents to take action. Have your ash tree evaluated for treatment before it’s too late!

Urgent alert - don’t lose your ash tree, protect it from emerald ash borer

Emerald ash borer is rapidly spreading in our community, attacking and killing unprotected ash trees. TIME IS RUNNING OUT to treat your ash trees before removal is your only option! Taking care of your mature ash trees preserves their value for your property and your neighborhood. Rainbow Treecare will inspect your ash tree(s) at no cost to you to determine if an EAB treatment is the best option.

One Tree at a Time

What are my choices if I have an ash tree?

If you have an ash tree, now is the time to decide what to do. Ash trees can either be protected or removed. Rainbow recommends that homeowners treat large, well-placed, healthy private ash trees to preserve our urban forest, One Tree at a Time.

Considerations for Treatment:

  • Is the size of your tree greater than 10” in diameter?
  • Is your tree competing with other trees or infrastructure?
  • Does your tree show no more than 30% of canopy decline if an infestation is suspected?

The loss of ash trees would make a substantial impact on our urban environment. Additionally, treating an ash tree is more cost-effective than removal. Best of all, you maintain the tree benefits and value of a mature tree to your property!
