DescriptionThe emerald ash borer (EAB), Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire (Buprestidae), was first found in North America in 2002. Eradication efforts are currently underway for this insect in both Canada and the United States. As part of the eradication program, thousands of ash trees are cut and chipped. Ash trees are known to produce stump sprouts, and therefore, herbicides are often applied to the cut surface of the stump to inhibit sprouting. In 2004, we initiated three studies in southern Michigan to evaluate the degree of stump sprouting and subsequent EAB infestation in relation to 1) time of felling, 2) stump height, 3) tree species, and 4) application of herbicide (Garlon).
