SUBJECT: Emerald Ash Borer
It has now been confirmed that the Emerald Ash Borer has been discovered in a privately owned Ash Tree within the Winona city limits. The EAB was earlier found in SE Minnesota in 2011 and its spread in the region had been anticipated. Private property owners will be responsible for the removal of Ash trees that become infested and to dispose of them within Winona County. The County is under a state quarantine that prohibits untreated hardwood, including Ash tree firewood, from leaving Winona County. A public disposal site will be made within the City of Winona for local residents. Contact Winona Public Works at 507-457-8269 for the location.
In 2012 the Winona City Council approved an Ash Tree Management plan that created a plan for chemically treating up to a third of the Ash trees on public boulevards and parks. The initial application occurred in 2012 and 2013, and will need to be repeated every three years for an undetermined length of time. Additionally the City has begun a program of removal and replacement of many of the remaining boulevard Ash trees. In 2013 one hundred Ash trees were removed with the same number of trees from a variety of species being planted in their place. That program will not continue in 2014, but will be considered again in 2015.
Removal and replacement, or ongoing chemical treatments are options for property owners to manage privately owned Ash trees. The spread of the EAB is anticipated to occur slowly for the next year or two and then to accelerate quickly thereafter. Prompt removal of infested trees may slow down the spread to other trees in the community and is encouraged.
