Emerald Ash Borer Question

Asked May 1, 2017, 7:49 PM EDT

Many of the Ash trees in our neighborhood are dead. Is there a place to report sick or dead trees for the state of Maryland? Many thanks in advance,

The emerald ash borer is in Maryland and is a problem. Since EAB is all over the state there are no quarantines anymore and does not need to be reported in your county.
Do not haul firewood out of the state. Dead trees become hazardous and ash trees become brittle when they die. In some instances cranes may be needed for removal.
Begin by looking at our emerald ash borer page for more information and removal. http://extension.umd.edu/hgic/invasives/emerald-ash-borer
