Emerald Ash Borer- How serious a threat?
by Jack Scratchard on March 2nd, 2014

 The Emerald Ash Borer is an invasive insect originally found around the Great Lakes in Michigan in 2002. It has since spread to 22 known states and killed tens of millions of Ash trees. It arrived in packing crates from Asia and is most often spread by moving Ash firewood from region to region. The larvae  of the bright metallic green insect can kill healthy Ash trees in as few as several years by tunneling beneath the bark, disrupting food and water  transport systems. There are several options for treatment, but mostly require a proactive approach to be effective.
