 Emerald Ash Borer

The spread of emerald ash borer (EAB) is a growing concern in Brentwood and Tennessee. This invasive insect was first detected in the United States in 2002 and “is now considered the most destructive tree insect pest ever to be introduced into North America.

It was first seen in Tennessee in 2010 and has since been confirmed in 59 counties, including Williamson County.   The ash borer is a significant threat to trees in urban and metropolitan areas, where as many as 15% of the trees are ash species.
