Emerald ash borer update

EAB
  • 59 counties including Davidson are now under state/federal quarantine. Map
  • EAB cannot be contained, and all ash species are at risk of dying.
  • Significant trees can sometimes be saved with permanent chemical treatments, if diagnosed early.
  • The most important way to slow the spread of EAB is to stop moving firewood.
