The State of New Hampshire recently confirmed that the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB), an invasive insect from Asia that has killed millions of ash trees nationwide, has been found in an ash tree in Concord, NH. In an effort to limit the spread of this insect, the State has issued a quarantine on the movement of ash materials coming out of and through Merrimack County.
Please review the images of the EAB and evidence of their presence on Ash Trees:
