The larvae feed beneath the bark, disrupting the movement of water and nutrients and killing the tree within several years. EAB is now found in 30 states, including neighboring Minnesota, Iowa and Nebraska. “Since trees can take decades to grow but provide a lifetime of benefits, homeowners want to take special considerations when deciding what to plant,” said SDDA forest health specialist Dr. John Ball. “The good rule of thumb is we don’t want to see more than 10 percent of a community’s trees in any one genus. That means no more than 10 percent maple, 10 percent oak, 10 percent any other genus of tree. My recommendation is to look and see what’s being planted down your neighborhood and plant something else. We never know what the next threat might be.” For more information, go to http://sdda.sd.gov/conservation-forestry/forest-health/emerald-ash-borer/default.aspx.
