Emerald Ash Borer

IMG-5270

Emerald Ash Borer has quickly spread across Wayzata.

In order to preserve Wayzata's natural landscape, all City trees that were marked with orange paint in April were removed due to an emerald ash borer (EAB) infestation. This will be an ongoing process. 

The plan is to remove, treat and replant.

What is EAB?

The EAB is a small invasive green beetle that infests and kills all American Ash trees. The larvae of these shiny green beetles tunnel beneath the bark of ash trees and gnaws away at the living tissue of ash trees until the tree eventually dies, usually 2 to 4 years after being infected.
