White Fringe Tree and Emerald Ash Borer
Emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis ), or EAB, is an imported Asian pest that has devastated ash trees (Fraxinus spp.) across North America. However, new evidence suggests EAB does not limit itself to ash trees. This publication addresses fringe trees as hosts for EAB. We identify the fringe tree, discuss EAB detection, and conclude by addressing treatment options.
