Emerald Ash Borer
Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) was confirmed in the St. Paul in 2009. Since then it has spread to all Twin City counties and many outstate counties. YTS’ ISA Certified Arborists are qualified to handle the identification, treatment and removal of EAB infected trees. We offer the most effective EAB treatments available to protect your most important ash trees, and if identified soon enough even save an infested ash tree.
Emerald Ash Borer is an invasive beetle from Asia. It was first discovered in the Eastern U.S. and has continued to spread west. It has devastated communities in Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, and has now come to Minnesota. The beetle is small and very difficult to identify. Once it has established itself in an ash tree it reproduces and the larva feed on the ash trees inner bark preventing the tree from moving food and water. The tree declines and dies within one to three years.
Minnesota is home to the largest population of ash trees in the U.S. Ash was a popular boulevard replacement tree for the many elms trees lost to Dutch Elm Disease. As much as 25% of the street and yard trees in the Twin Cities are now ash trees. It will not be possible to save many of the ash trees in Minnesota.

The economic impact EAB with bring to municipalities and large commercial properties could be devastating. Our ISA Certified Arborists and Urban Forester are able to do a GIS Inventory of all your ash trees and create an Emerald Ash Borer action plan. This plan can help estimate and budget costs for an ash tree removal and replacement program along with providing a plan on which ash trees can and should be saved through a well thought out injection program. The time to have a well prepared plan is before Emerald Ash Borer reaches your community or property. A good plan can help spread out the costs brought on by EAB and can significantly slow its progression through your community or large property. Don’t just wait for this disaster, be prepared by calling YTS and start your action plan.
YTS offers tree injections that can prevent your ash tree from becoming infested by EAB. If injected before infestation or very early in the infestation you are able to save important trees on boulevards and other public areas and preserve the aesthetic and economic value those trees provide. YTS’ Plant Health Care specialists are all licensed pesticide applicators and can treat the ash trees cost effectively and safely, without posing any hazards to residents.
