Abstract

Imagine an insect arriving in an area where there is an unlimited food supply and no natural predators. This is the kind of dream life the emerald ash borer is leading in North America. This insect attacks healthy ash trees, causing damage that leads to mortality within a few years. The emerald ash borer has already killed several millions of ash trees since it was first discovered here in 2002. You can play a role in detecting its presence and halting its spread by learning about the risks associated with the movement of firewood. By educating ourselves about this exotic insect, we can all do our part to protect Canada’s ash trees.
