Native to Asia, the Emerald Ash Borer made its first appearance in North America in the year 2002 and has since become an extremely invasive species, highly destructive to ash trees. Having already killed hundreds of millions of these trees, this exotic, green jeweled beetle has most recently appeared in Rockland County, NY. Adults of the species leave very distinctive D-shaped exit holes in the outer bark of the trees’ branches and trunk. The larvae are most damaging as they feed off the nutrients and water of a tree. An infestation of Emerald Ash Borer can lead to the death of a tree within 2-4 years.
