EAB 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.
Boulder 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.
For more information on the EAB and the EAB Plan, contact Brett Stadsvold, Boulder County EAB Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 303-678-6048. You can also contact the CSU Extension in Longmont at 303-678-6238. Interested parties are encouraged to subscribe to the county’s EAB email listserv to receive up-to-date news and other information about the county’s efforts to control the insect.
