Emerald Ash Borer found in Rockville, Maryland

Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources - Forestry Archive

Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources – Forestry Archive

In mid-June Wayne Noll (City of Rockville), Chuck Schuster and Stanton Gill of University of Maryland visited a park in Rockville to examine ash trees. They found exit holes and adult beetles of the highly-invasive species, Emerald Ash Borer?(EAB), Agrilus planipennis.?present. A Maryland Department of Agriculture representative confirmed the find. This officially makes Rockville an Emerald Ash Borer jurisdiction.

What does this mean for the ash trees of Montgomery County MD? Green ash and white ash are the two popular street trees used in urban landscapes. Green ash tends to be the dominant ash sold by the green industry in Maryland. Unlike many native borer species that mainly attack weakened tree, the Emerald Ash Borer attacks healthly and weak trees alike.

Be on the lookout for small holes about the size of a pea in your ash if they start to look stressed. Emerald Ash Borers are a brilliant metallic emerald green but if they’re already in your tree the hole will be your only clue. If you suspect EAB damage to your ash trees in Montgomery County, MD or Washington DC, contact Wood Acres Tree Specialists immediately for expert diagnosis and treatment by one of our arborists. Visit Wood Acres’ tree pest index for more information on the Emerald Ash Borer and other damaging insects to Maryland trees and shrubs.
