Emerald Ash Borer

The Town of Newstead recommends that you take a moment to educate yourself on Emerald Ash Borer.

The emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis) is a green beetle native to Asia and Eastern Russia. Outside its native region, the emerald ash borer (also referred to as EAB) is an invasive species, and emerald ash borer infestation is highly destructive to ash trees in its introduced range. The emerald ash borer has been found in our area.
