Emerald ash borer


I found these wavy markings on the bark of my dead apple tree. Are these the markings of Emerald ash borer?

Emerald ash borer


Not likely----Emerald Ash Borer is only known to attack ash trees---there are plenty of other pests that get under the bark of trees---If Chrisn sees this,he might know the creatures name---Mike---

that would be all I could add, there are so many that you would have to catch one to identify it

Emerald ash borer


EMB's for real big problem in some areas.

Years ago, there was the Dutch Elm disease to totally stripped cities of elms and Ash treees were planted wholesale everywhere (for quick replacements) with little planning.

Now we have the EAB killing the ash trees, but many people have used the preventative measures to to buy a few years. there are numerous post on the internet to identify problems, short-term treatment and suggested replacement species.

Now, the Twin Cities (MSP) are embarking on a planned removal and replacement program (different species). Over a 5 year or so program, the trees are scheduled for removal and replacement of different species to avoid the common mistakes cities took years ago.

Minneapolis will take out and replace 40,000 trees and St. Paul a similar amount over 4 or 5 years. That is just for public property and individuals have to fight their battle on private property at their own cost because they planted the species or they were naturally seeded there. - A big, short term individual property value hit on the historic areas of the cities. Fortunately, the many parks and other properties will be done as scheduled with better species of trees that are determined by botanists.

hopefully they mix up the species so as to avoid the same problem all over again
