Emerald Ash Borer
Emerald ash borer (EAB) is a non-native, invasive beetle that kills healthy ash trees. It was first detected in Michigan in 2002 and has since been identified in 24 states. EAB has not yet been detected in Montana, but there is a tremendous likelihood that it will be introduced in the foreseeable future.
