Protect Your Trees From Emerald Ash Borer | Environment
Some 998 million ash trees grow in Minnesota, according to state officials, and they are vulnerable to the insect called the Emerald Ash Borer.
Today Wright-Hennepin County Cooperative Electric Association is holding two free treatment seminars on how to deal with this invasive pest. You'll learn how to protect your trees at 3:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. at the association's office at 6800 Electric Drive in Rockford.
The Emerald Ash Borer kills trees and does so in large numbers, says the Minnesota DNR.
Trees lose more than a third of their canopy within two years of the infestation and die within three to four years if the tree is not treated.
Sign up for the seminars by calling 763-477-3000.
