Alert From the Experts!
The emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis) has been confirmed in Colorado. This invasive Asian beetle has decimated ash trees in the Midwest since its discovery in 2002, costing millions of dollars to homeowners and cities. Early detection is key to controlling the emerald ash borer! Look for signs of infestation and report them to your county extension office.
Visit the Colorado Department of Agriculture for more info.

Gardening Help is a joint program of the Colorado State University Extension and Denver Botanic Gardens.
