To understand patterns (tracking the Emerald Ash Borer)
o Developed by DNR, the GIS application displays EAB infestations in relation to geographic features such as rivers, streets, roads and communities. With this tool you can find reported locations of emerald ash borer within the state. The points shown are collected from DNR annual surveys and from the DNR Division of Entomology and Plant Pathology field staff. A live larva must be collected from an ash tree and identified by a trained specialist in order to confirm the presence of EAB at the marked location. The map will be updated on a monthly basis as new locations are identified. The map also indicates which townships and counties are under quarantine.
