Emerald Ash Borer Recommendations for Jeffco
The insect still has not been reported in Jefferson County. Currently recommendations are to treat susceptible ash trees if you live within a 5 mile radius of central Boulder. To help you decide about treatment options, please see the fact sheet "Control Options for Emerald Ash Borer in Colorado" by CSU Extension Entomologist Whitney Cranshaw at this link on the Colorado Department of Agriculture's web site.
Please note that no hardwood tree samples can be brought to the Jefferson County Plant Diagnostic Clinic from Boulder County.
