was found in the City of Boulder in September 2013. EAB is a non-native,
wood-boring beetle that attacks native ash (Fraxinus) tree species. It is a
state and federally-regulated invasive pest that is responsible for the death
of tens of millions of ash trees in 26 states.
County is working with the City of Boulder, adjacent communities and the
Colorado Department of Agriculture to ensure consistency and coordination of
any communications and policy decisions.
