The City of Woodbury has partnered with Rainbow Treecare to offer residents a new discount program for preventative treatment of their ash trees against emerald ash borer (EAB).

Residents are encouraged to take steps to mitigate the effects of the expected tree loss across the city as well as be on the lookout for signs and symptoms of the emerald ash borer (EAB) infestation. Here is what you can do:

The entire community benefits from a mature tree canopy. An average ash tree in Woodbury will keep pollution from rivers and lakes, reduce CO2 in the atmosphere by 600 or more pounds every year, and produce the cooling effect of 10 room-size air conditioners operating 20 hours per day. Treating an ash tree for 20 years is more cost-effective than removal and replacement.
Rainbow Treecare will inspect the tree(s) at no cost to determine if treatment is the best option. The tree must be in good condition, showing no more than 30% of canopy decline if infested, at least 10 inches in diameter, and is not competing with other trees or infrastructure.
If you're interested in learning more about the discount program or would like to schedule a tree inspection with Rainbow Treecare, call 952-767-6920 or visit the Rainbow Tree Care website.
Not all ash trees can be treated. Also, it would be too costly to treat thousands of ash trees on city property. Treatment is more affordable for residents with one or two ash trees on their property. The city is replacing ash trees it removes with a variety of species.
