City managers faced with the invasion of emerald ash borer into their urban forests need to plan for the invasion in order to obtain the resources they need to protect the public from harm caused by dying ash trees. Currently, city foresters can avoid harm from falling trees by removing, replacing, or treating them with insecticides. Costs for these activities vary widely between municipalities depending on local real estate values, labor costs, and the type and frequency of insecticide treatment. The particular combinations of these tactics that work best for a particular city depend on forest composition, local needs and budgets.
