Emerald Ash Borer Damage in Eagan, MN
April 18, 2019 – The Emerald Ash Borer is an invasive beetle species that has plagued Ash Trees throughout North America for nearly twenty years. They cause irreversible destruction and many Ash Trees in the U.S. have had to be taken down due to the damage they can cause. The photo below, taken in Eagan, Minnesota, shows some of the worst Emerald Ash Borer damage I have ever seen. The only way to truly protect your trees from this pesky beetle is through prevention.
