USDA FINDS EMERALD ASH BORER IN GRAINGER COUNTY

Bean Station, TN

Another east Tennessee county can be added to the list of counties found to be infested with the invasive insect pest Emerald Ash Borer. The insect pest, which only attacks Ash trees, had previously been found in Blount, Knox, and Loudon counties. The Tennessee Department of Agriculture has quarantined the movement of firewood, Ash nursery stock, and Ash timber in the affected counties to try to slow the spread of Emerald Ash Borer to other counties in Tennessee.

First discovered in southeast Michigan in 2002, the Emerald Ash Borer is responsible for killing millions of Ash trees in the U.S. and Canada. The Emerald Ash Borer adult is a green beetle that feeds on the leaves of Ash trees. The adult insect does little harm to the Ash tree, but the larva is a tree borer that will eventually kill untreated Ash trees. The larvae of Emerald Ash Borer feed just below the bark of Ash trees, disrupting the flow of water and nutrients throughout the tree. Ash trees are usually killed from an Emerald Ash Borer infestation within 3 - 4 years of the initial attack.

Arborists can save individual Ash trees with tree trunk injections or by spraying Ash trees. The frequency of how often Ash trees need to be treated and the cost to control Emerald Ash Borer depends on the insect control method used. Untreated Ash trees will eventually be found, and killed, by this highly destructive insect pest.
