Latest EAB Information for Municipal Foresters
The Morton Arboretum suggests these steps for municipal foresters:
Conduct a public education campaign by helping homeowners understand what an ash tree and EAB look like.
View Host Trees list to understand more deeply what species are at risk of EAB. Consult the list of ash replacments as you plan management and planting strategies for the future.
Contact Firewood Dealers to ensure they are not “importing” firewood.
- Examples of EAB management plans are available on the Illinois Dept of Agriculture EAB website.
EAB Readiness Plan
The Morton Arboretum was highly instrumental in crafting a plan to get Illinois ready for the Emerald ash borer's arrival in the state. See our EAB Readiness Plan, which can guide other states and regions in readiness planning for invasive insects. Our thanks to the U.S. Forest Service for their funding in this effort.
