Wow, I remember doing a mapping project in College for City of Woodstock regarding Ash Borer Beetles destroying Ash trees in the area.

Ash Borer Beetle

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has confirmed the presence of the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) in Waterloo Region in the area of Homer Watson Boulevard/Fountain Street and the 401.

EAB is a highly destructive insect that attacks and kills all species of ash trees and was first discovered in Windsor and Detroit in 2002.

Residents and visitors are asked to take the following steps to help slow the spread of the pest:
• Don’t transfer firewood into or out of Waterloo Region – buy local, burn local, never take it home.
• If you have an ash tree on your private property that is showing signs of decline or distress and suspect it may be infested by the EAB, contact the CFIA at 1-866-463-6017.
