About the Emerald Ash Borer
This destructive insect pest kills ash trees, usually within 2 to 5 years. While it has not been detected in Vermont, it is present in all surrounding states. It has killed millions of ash trees, mostly in the midwest and eastern US. The Tree Board is working on a plan to address the damage done by this insect which will eventually arrive in our City. Do you have ash trees in your yard? Become aware and learn more about this and other pests at the Vermont Invasives website.
