Coopet is required to plant 27 trees by Sept. 2. According to the settlement, they must be red oak, bur oak, honey locust, eastern red cedar, hybrid elm, bigtooth aspen, hackberry or black walnut trees. That will repair the amount of tree cover needed, Getschow said.

The $24,900 fine that Coopet pays will go into Eden Prairie’s park fund.

The incident shows that the city takes the land preservation agreement seriously, Getschow said. He encouraged residents to notify the city if they see similar violations.

Otherwise, he said, “we may never know about it.”
