Description: The emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis; EAB) is poised to wipe out native ashes (Fraxinus spp.) in North America with expected catastrophic losses to ash tree forestry (MacFarlane and Meyer 2005). EAB was first discovered in Detroit in 2002. Most scientists hypothesize that it entered the United States through solid wood packing material transported in cargo ships and on planes. The beetles have continued their spread through firewood, wooden packing materials, and infested nursery trees. In only a few years, EAB has destroyed most ash trees within the Detroit Metropolitan area and spread through Michigan's lower peninsula and into Ohio, Indiana, and other states. For the foreseeable future, EAB will continue to destroy urban and forested ash trees, causing substantial economic impacts.
