    The emerald ash borer (EAB) (Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire), an exotic invasive pest from Asia, was introduced into Maryland in April 2003 via infested nursery stock shipped from Michigan to a nursery in southern Prince George's County. A nursery inspector from the Maryland Department of Agriculture (MDA) noticed EAB infested trees at the site in August 2003. A half-mile buffer zone was established around the nursery, and all ash trees within the quarantine zone were destroyed in an effort to eradicate the pest.
