Emerald Ash Borer take the quiz
Agrilus planipennis

Emerald Ash Borer (Agrilus planipennis) is an invasive plant of Ash. It is a native of Asia and was first detected in Michigan in 2002.

EAB is moves less than 3 miles per year on its own. The main reason it is spreading across the Midwest is people moving infested firewood. If people would dispose of infected trees on site rather than taking wood camping with them the problem would not have spread. This is just one of many forest pests that are moved to un-infested forests by humans moving firewood. Help to protect our forests: dont move firewood!

This invasive plant has been identified by USDA-APHIS as a serious threat to US Agriculture and Natural Resources, and surveys have been planned for multiple states.
