Emerald Ash Borer Treatment

Officials at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, in Omaha, and in Council Bluffs, Iowa, are taking different approaches toward handling an expected infestation of an ash tree-killing insect, the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB).

In the battle against the Emerald Ash Borer, the City has already removed and replaced 222 ash trees and expects to remove and replace 400-500 more.

Due to the recent discovery of the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) in Nebraska, it’s important to be able to recognize and identify if you have ash trees.

Here is a simple guide for ash tree identification:

Nebraska Extension in Lancaster County and the Nebraska Forest Service are presenting three seminars about the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) to provide homeowners with the information they need to make good decisions about the care of their ash trees.

It was one month ago today that the Nebraska Department of Agriculture confirmed the emerald ash borer was found for the first time in Nebraska. Find out what plans have been put into place since then.
Less than 10 days after the first discovery of the Emerald Ash Borer in Omaha, the Nebraska Department of Agriculture announced a second discovery in Greenwood, Nebraska.
Today the Nebraska Department of Agriculture announced the emerald ash borer was found for the first time in Nebraska in a park in Omaha.

In June 2016, the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) responsible for destroying tens of millions of ash trees in the U.S was confirmed in Nebraska. The state has been preparing for this possibility, and is now implementing an EAB plan. You can find information at www.eabne.info.

We are also preparing and planning to help treat ash trees next spring or later, which is recommended. The Nebraska Forest Service indicates treatments should only be used when EAB is confirmed within 15 miles of your location. Treating treast beyond the 15 miles will likely provide little or no benefit, and will result in unnecessary exposure of the environment to pesticides.

More details will be be provided as we prepare for EAB treatments and as we monitor the situation.
