Emerald Ash Borer In CT

Thursday morning Harris “Bud” Neal led a group of State environmental officials, arborculturists, tree wardens, foresters and other tree service personnel through an area in Naugatuck that is infested with the emerald ash borer, an imported pest that has caused the state to quarantine at least three counties against movement of wood products.

Claire Rutledge, with the Connecticut Agricultural Experimental Station in New Haven, extricates part of an emerald ash borer insect (the tiny spec in her hand) as State environmental officials, arborists, tree wardens, foresters and other tree service personnel look on in an area of Naugatuck that is infested with the insect.
