Bryn Mawr
Meeting on Bryn Mawr ash borer plans
Plans to combat emerald ash borer in Bryn Mawr will be shared with neighborhood residents at an informational meeting Sept. 15 at Bryn Mawr Community School, 252 Upton Ave. S.

Bryn Mawr Neighborhood Association (BMNA) Board of Directors discussed plans to monitor the spread of an invasive beetle species that can infest and kill ash trees at several meetings over the summer. Emerald ash borers have killed millions ash trees since their introduction to North America, and were discovered in St. Paul earlier this year.

The ash borer hasn’t made it to Bryn Mawr, yet, but BMNA Board members discussed steps to prepare for its arrival. A neighborhood tree census may begin later this summer or fall, and plans to treat infected trees were in the works. The time of the Sept. 15 neighborhood meeting was uncertain at the August BMNA Board meeting.
