Emerald ash borer found in Minneapolis trees

The emerald ash borer has been confirmed in Minneapolis trees, state authorities said Thursday.

Four trees in the Prospect Park neighborhood of Minneapolis have confirmed infestations, the Star Tribune said.

The trees confirmed with infestation are within a mile of where they were last detected in St. Paul, WCCO said.

Emerald ash borers kill ash trees that they infest when the larvae tunnel through the tree and steal its nutrients, said WCCO.
