Emerald Ash Borer and Brainerd Lakes

The Brainerd Lakes Area needs to be concerned about spread of the Emerald Ash Borer, according to Len Nelson of Deblen Service Company of Pequot Lakes. The pest has been discovered in St.Paul, where trees have been cut-down to slow its spread.

Nelson tells KLKS News, the kind of Ash Borers we have had in the past attack weak trees. The difference is, the Emerald Borer attacks healthy trees. To save them, he says trees need to be treated annually.

Nelson says there are 900 million Ash trees in Minnesota. White and Green Ash are most common here.
