Eagan is a city of trees. Caring for them involves preservation, management, and maintenance to ensure the health of our urban forest. Our success depends on residents, businesses, developers and the Forestry staff, all helping grow and manage Eagan's trees. Our goal is to provide a better quality of life for present and future generations.

This Forestry page provides important communications and information about current forestry initiatives and programs.  Please use the links below to find out more about:

Minnesota Tree Resources

The University of Minnesota, the Minnesota DNR, and other federal, state, and local agencies offer useful information regarding emerald ash borer (EAB) activity status and oak wilt risk status, and tree management information. Additional links and resources are provided to help you find relevant tree and landscape-related information.

Minnesota Trees and the Law

The City of Eagan does not have the legal authority to adjudicate tree disputes between private property owners.  We encourage amicable resolution of property disputes between neighbors. When this is not feasible, either party may choose to seek professional advice.  Check the links below for helpful advice and resources.
