Tree lovers can breathe a little easier.

The beetle brought to the Public Works and Parks Department office in City Hall on Monday isn't an emerald ash borer.

The bug has been identified as a bark-gnawing beetle, according to Debbie Andrews, administrative assistant for the department.

Andrews said the identification was made by Ken Holman, a Hudson resident and head of the Urban Forestry Program for the state of Minnesota.
