Madison Parks launches a newly updated Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) website

December 12, 2012

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 newly updated EAB website will help our Madison residents keep updated on this very important issue," stated Madison Parks Superintendent Kevin Briski. "Although EAB has not been confirmed in Dane County, it has been confirmed in nearby counties. Therefore it is important that everyone know and understand how the city plans to combat this insect."

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.
