Burnsville will treat more than 1,100 ash trees on public property for the emerald ash borer and remove 270 ash trees that are in poor condition. Residents who have public ash trees that will receive treatment in the boulevard adjacent to their homes have already been notified.
Residents can take advantage of the city’s contract prices to treat ash trees on their private property. Residents will be responsible for the full cost of these private treatments.
Residents interested in scheduling a treatment for private ash trees should contact Rainbow Treecare at 952-767-6920 for pricing and scheduling. The contract prices are valid through the end of 2017.
