It’s only a matter of time before Emerald Ash Borer begins killing the more than 1,600 Ash trees on public property in Edina. It’s estimated there are two to three times that many Ash trees on private property. To keep the tree canopy in Edina strong, the City of Edina is looking to gauge resident interest in the City partnering with an organization, such as Tree Trust, to bring discounted trees to residents. Currently in cities such as St. Louis Park and Minneapolis, residents are able to purchase trees at a deeply discounted price through the program. In St. Louis Park for example, the trees cost residents $35 each and measure 4 to 6 feet. Residents can select from seven trees purposely selected for their tolerance and environmental impact. The trees can be ordered online. Residents are asked to pick up their trees from a specific site during specific dates and times.
