What is the Emerald Ash Borer beetle?
Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) is an invasive insect that infests the ash tree populations of the Fraxinus species. EAB was first identified in Michigan in 2002 and has since been responsible for the death or decline of tens of millions of ash trees in over 20 U.S. states. In September 2013 EAB was detected within the City of Boulder as the first suspected presence of EAB in Colorado. The Parks, Open Space & Golf Dept. will begin precautionary measures in the Spring of 2014 to combat the spread of EAB within City limits. The Colorado Dept. of Agriculture and the United States Dept. of Agriculture - Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service - Plant Protection and Quarantine has issued a quarantine for Boulder County. A quarantine of this nature is a Federal and State regulatory law effectively restricting the transport of infected tree debris outside the quarantined area. All tree debris including mulch must remain in the quarantined area - at this point this includes Boulder County. For more detailed information, please visit:Forestry: Emerald Ash Borer Beetle
