Rockville Emerald Ash Borer Information
How Many Ash Trees Are In Rockville?
While data for Rockville ash trees specifically doesn’t exist, the Department of Agriculture estimates the number of ash trees in all of Minnesota at one billion, the highest concentration in the country.
How Do I Identify Ash Trees?
Ash trees have:
- large canopies to provide shade.
- leaves which are compound, coming in sets of 5-11 leaflets.
- leaf buds and branches opposed to each other – they’re exactly matching and not staggered unless one has broken off.
- bark which is smooth when young, and roughens as they age.
- seeds which are dry, oar-shaped samaras that hang around until late-fall or early-winter.
How Did Emerald Ash Borer Get To Minnesota?
No one knows exactly how the first EAB got to Minnesota, but it first appeared in St. Paul in 2009.
In other cases, EAB has been spread through the carrying of firewood across county or state lines or brought in on solid wood packing material carried in international cargo ships and planes.
What Does Emerald Ash Borer Damage Look Like?
EAB larvae hatch from eggs, chew through bark and tunnel underneath the bark.
These “S”-shaped tunnels cut off the trees’ natural nutrient pipelines running up and down the trunk or branches. As bark falls off, you’ll be able to see the tunnels underneath. When the larvae grow into adulthood, they tunnel back out through the bark, leaving small “D” shaped holes on their exit.
