Emerald Ash Borer

The Emerald Ash Borer is an insect that infects and kills ash trees. It was discovered in 2002 in Michigan and has since moved eastward, killing millions of ash trees. It was discovered in New Jersey in 2014 and has made its way to eight counties, including neighboring Somerset County. It’s only a matter of time before it crosses into Morris County. The video describes the issue in detail.  Get more info on EAB.
