Residents should call arborist with concerns about ash borers | Savage Pacer: Submitted by Nancy Huddleston on May 20, 2009 - 8:06am.
The recent discovery of Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) in Twin Cities metropolitan area has generated many inquiries to the city of Savage.
If residents suspect the presence of ash borers, city staff recommends that residents call a certified arborist to make a proper diagnosis and recommendation for treatment or abatement. A list of certified arborists can be found on the city’s Web site, www.cityofsavage.com.
Unfortunately, the city does not have adequate staffing levels to conduct site inspections on private property, according to Public Works Director John Powell. Trees on public land will continue to be monitored by staff as time allows.
