The Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) has confirmed the first emerald ash borer (EAB) infested tree in the southeastern city of La Crescent, Minnesota.


In August 2011, MDA found an emerald ash borer adult on a purple detection trap in La Crescent's Veterans Park, but at that time no infested trees could be found. MDA staff worked with the city to continue surveys and recently discovered two EAB infested trees near the center of the city.
