dc.description.abstract The Emerald Ash Borer is an exotic Asian beetle that is killing most of the ash trees in Southeast Michigan. First identified in 2002 by David Roberts, Ph.D. Michigan State University (http://web1.msue.msu.edu/reg_se/roberts/ash/) the infestation is spreading to other parts of Michigan and adjacent states despite mitigation efforts and quarantines by state and federal environmental agencies (http://www.emeraldashborer.info/files/TriState_EABpos.pdf) . The beetle was probably introduced to North America by infested solid wood packing material for cargo imported from Asia through the Port of Detroit. There are millions of ash trees in Michigan alone and many more millions across North America. As of 2005 eight to ten million ash trees in Southeast Michigan have died. en_US
