Cutting St. Paul ash trees


Under attack by the emerald ash borer, St. Paul trees began to fall to the chainsaws of the St. Paul Parks & Recreation department on Tuesday. More than 50 infested trees in the St. Anthony Park neighborhood will be cut down, and efforts to trap the insects are also underway. The emerald ash borers “threaten to devastate Minnesota’s estimated 900 million ash trees,” reports the Pioneer Press. Tree experts will offer information at an open house from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday at the South St. Anthony Park Recreational Center, 890 Cromwell Ave.

I’m a news junkie, and I read news reports from dozens of sources every day. News Day is my blog, and in it, I summarize, link to, and comment on reports from news media around the world, with particular attention to Minnesota news.
