    An EAB population was discovered in late 2007 at a recreational area near Oak Hill in Fayette Co., West Virginia. A survey conducted within a half-mile radius of the original trap tree identified 312 ash trees. Of these about half were observed with binoculars for signs of infestation; 21 trees were obviously infested (four heavily), 22 were possibly infested, and 110 showed no signs of infestation.
