DescriptionEmerald ash borer (EAB; Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire), a phloem-feeding beetle native to Asia, was discovered near Detroit, MI, and Windsor, ON, in 2002. As of March 2009, isolated populations of EAB have been detected in nine additional states and Quebec. EAB is a highly invasive forest pest that has the potential to spread and kill native ash trees (Fraxinus spp.) throughout the United States. There is little scientific literature on the number of ash trees in developed areas, the cost of treating trees to prevent infestation, and the cost of removing trees in response to infestation.
