EAB is an invasive beetle from Asia that targets Ash trees. The EAB feeds on the inner bark of ash trees, disrupting the tree’s ability to transport water and nutrients. Once an ash tree has been affected, there is no cure to save that tree. Trees can be treated for EAB, but it must be done before the tree is infected with the beetle.
