Washington County Receives Compensation for Damaged Trees

DuPont, the manufacturer of Imprelis, has agreed to pay the county $33,665 in compensation for damage to trees at Lake Elmo Park Reserve and the Historic Courthouse in Stillwater.

Washington County will be compensated for damage done to trees by the herbicide Imprelis in Lake Elmo Park Reserve and the grounds of the Historic Courthouse in Stillwater.

DuPont, the manufacturer of Imprelis, has agreed to pay the county $33,665 in compensation to cover the cost of replacing the trees, according to a release from Washington County.

The agreements, proposed by DuPont, provide $7,677.50 in compensation for trees damaged in the Lake Elmo Park Reserve, and $25,988.40 for trees damaged at the Historic Courthouse in Stillwater.

Imprelis is no longer on the market—the Environmental Protection Agency issued a stop sale order in August 2011 following reports that the herbicide caused damage to certain species of evergreen trees

DuPont has a website with more information.
