The City of Roseville is within the Emerald Ash Borer infestation zone. This means that all ash trees within the city are considered to be infested with Emerald Ash Borer, or will become infested with Emerald Ash Borer (EAB). Unfortunately, EAB eventually kills all infested, untreated trees.
The city is currently implementing a multi-pronged, proactive approach to managing public ash trees including REMOVAL of diseased trees that have shown significant signs of decay, PLANTING trees of different species to replace ash and TREATING select ash trees.
While the removals and subsequent plantings will be on public property (within parks and along boulevards), it is equally important to increase tree canopy on private property. This low-cost tree sale makes it easy for residents to purchase, pick up, and learn to plant a tree on their property at an affordable rate and will provide benefits in not only your lifetime, but for generations to come.
