Treatments have concluded for 2018. If you are interested in getting on the list for City treatment in 2019, please call 651-490-4665.

A list of tree contractors licensed to work in Shoreview, many of whom offer this treatment, is available on the City's Forestry webpage.

The City of Shoreview offers preventative treatment against the emerald ash borer (EAB) annually. If you are interested in treating your ash tree(s), please call the Forestry department at 651-490-4665. Beginning in May, a certified tree inspector will inspect the tree(s) and provide a quote for treatment cost. Cost is determined by tree size, as shown in the table below. In order to be treated for EAB, a tree must be healthy, have at least 70% of its canopy, and cannot be showing symptoms of EAB.
