Boulder County Emerald Ash borer plan approved

Boulder County Implements EAB Management Plan in 2016  Emerald Ash Borers emerging from tree

Boulder County Parks and Open Space has begun implementing its Emerald Ash Borer Management Plan on lands managed by Boulder County, including ash trees on county-owned or maintained properties or rights-of-way. The plan was approved by the Boulder County Board of Commissioners on August 25, 2015. The plan guides EAB management efforts such as removals, treatments and new plantings for county-managed ash trees in response to the emerald ash borer infestation.

The plan covers trees covered by the following Boulder County departments: Administrative Services; Housing and Human Services; Parks and Open Space; and Transportation. A Boulder County ash tree inventory identified about 1,500 such trees, most of which are located adjacent to county roadways.

This plan does *not,* however, apply to ash trees located on federal, state, municipal or private property within Boulder County. If you are a property owner in Boulder County, now is the time to make a plan for your ash trees. View Boulder County Extension’s Emerald Ash Borer Page to learn what Boulder County citizens can do to prepare for EAB’s arrival in their own backyards.
