Emerald Ash Borer
The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) is a very destructive invasive
beetle from Asia. EAB can infest and kill all native species
of Ash trees regardless of health. EAB larvae tunnel and feed
in the vascular system which causes the tree to decline and
eventually die. It is now believed to have been present in North
America (SE Michigan) for at leat 15-20 years. 10's of
millions of Ash trees have already been claimed by EAB.
Infestations and confirmation sites have greatly inceased in
northern Illinios over the past few years. EAB has the potential to
wipe out every Ash tree in North America.
Ash Preservation/Treatment Options:
* We believe the cost of treatment and preservation of the urban landscape highly outweighs the Ash population succumbing to EAB.
