The emerald ash borer was first detected in North America in 2002, but is likely to have arrived on the continent at least ten years earlier. This Asian beetle has proven to be highly destructive. Since its arrival, it has destroyed millions of ash trees and continues to spread to new regions, causing considerable economic and ecological damage.
