    The purpose of EAB Awareness Week is to increase the number of citizens who are informed about emerald ash borer, emphasizing this year’s theme,


    “The Three P’s of EAB: Prepare, Protect, and Plant”:


    Prepare for your ash tree to be infested with emerald ash borer. Know the signs and symptoms of EAB. Know your options and what to do if your tree becomes infested. Depending on your city’s shade tree pest ordinance, you can choose to take down your tree, treat your tree, or do nothing.


    Protect areas not yet infested with emerald ash borer by not moving firewood and adhering to quarantine boundaries. If you are within 15 miles of an EAB infestation, you can protect your tree with insecticide treatments.


    Plant a variety of native trees.
