EMERALD ASH BORER IN MISSOURI

Chesterfield, MO

Since its discovery in Wayne County, MO in 2008, Missouri Department of Conservation officials have been concerned with the potential for widespread damage from Emerald Ash Borer insects. Chesterfield received a state grant to remove and replace Ash trees. Other nearby cities that also received grants to remove and replace Ash trees includes Ballwin, Richmond Heights, and Wildwood.

Emerald Ash Borer arrived in Wayne County, MI sometime before 2002. It is believed the invasive insect was a passenger in packing crates from Asia. Since its arrival the Emerald Ash Borer has spread to several other states and has killed tens of millions of Ash trees. Arborists can save individual trees with tree spraying or trunk injections, but treatment of Ash trees in forested areas is not economically feasible.

Missouri Department of Conservation officials are especially worried about the green beetle making its way into St. Louis. Ash trees were a common replacement for Elm trees killed by Dutch Elm Disease. As a result there are a large number of Ash trees planted in and around the St. Louis area.
