Emerald Ash Borer

On June 18, 2020 9news.com reported the first confirmed emerald ash borer presence in Arvada, CO. Only a 19.4 drive from Cherry Hills Village in metro Denver, warnings went up on the villager’s city website: “EAB has been detected in only Boulder County and efforts are being made to determine the severity as well as the solution to rid the pest. Currently there are no reports of EAB in the Denver metro area, but the USDA along with the Village are asking residents to educate themselves on this highly destructive insect including methods to manage its potential spread to the metro area.”

Introduced to North America in the early 190s, EAB had ravaged millions of ash trees in the Midwest and east. Trees native to North America have little resistance to this pest, according to the CSU Agricultural Extension.
