Emerald Ash Borer Found in Boulder
Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) was found in Boulder, CO, in September 2013. As a non-native insect, EAB lacks predators to keep it in check. EAB only attacks ash trees, and is responsible for the death of millions of ash trees in the midwest. Help protect Colorado's ash trees!
