Emerald Ash Borer - The emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis) is an invasive Asian beetle that has decimated ash trees in the Midwest since its discovery in 2002, costing home owners and cities millions of dollars. The beetle's presence has been recently confirmed in Colorado. Early detection is key to controlling the emerald ash borer! You can help protect ash trees by looking for signs of infestation and reporting them to your County Extension Office.
