Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) Branch Sampling Results

Madison Parks Forestry Section concluded its second year of 'Branch Sampling' test program for early Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) detection this week. No evidence of Emerald Ash Borer was detected.
The Forestry staff sampled a total of 788 city ash trees in designated plots spaced at 6/10th mile intervals throughout the city limits. The bark was removed from the harvested branches to search for EAB larva.
This is the second year Madison Parks Forestry branch sampling has been used to test for EAB infestation. This detection method provides a more sensitive measure than the visual evaluation and the purple traps. Branch sampling has shown to be 75% effective at finding EAB in low-level infestations. Forestry Staff used the branch sampling test last year for the first time. No EAB infestation was discovered at that time.
In December, Madison Parks launched a newly designed and updated Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) website

The City of Madison Forestry Section has updated its Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) website. There are two new features on the website:

• Residents can enter their street address to find out if there is an ash street tree planted in front of their home or within the neighborhood
• Residents can email the Forestry Section directly to report a suspected EAB sighting. If you don't know what to look for the website has information about the pest and images for you to help you identify the Emerald Ash Borer.

The EAB website is designed for residents to find out more about EAB, what you can do, and frequent updates on the situation in Dane County and Madison. For more information, contact City of Madison Forestry at 608-266-4816.
