In November of 2013, EAB was discovered in Madison. The City of Madison has been working on its tactical response to EAB since 2008. The plan provides a balanced approach of treatment, removals and replanting and was approved by Common Council in 2012.
On Friday, Nov 22, 2013, EAB was confirmed in an ash tree in the City of Madison in the Warner Park area on the City’s North side. The Forestry Section is currently assessing the infestation and will post more information on the website as it becomes available.
If you think your private tree is infested with EAB, please contact a private tree care company or certified arborist to verify the infestation at your own expense. City of Madison Forestry Section will be concentrating its efforts on city street trees.
