Emerald Ash Borer
Emerald Ash Borer in Stevens Point
EAB is a metallic-green beetle that measures approximately ½ inch long. The immature stage of the insect feeds on the inner bark of ash trees, disrupting the tree's ability to transport water and nutrients. Signs of EAB-infested ash trees include thinning or dying branches in the upper canopy, evidence of woodpecker activity, S-shaped feeding galleries under dead or splitting bark, D-shaped exit holes, and water sprouts along the trunk and main branches.

Important Information for Residents

For more information, residents can call the Stevens Point Forestry Dept. at 715-346-1532, or look to the State of Wisconsin's EAB webpage.
