Emerald Ash Borer
The emerald ash borer (EAB) insect is an invasive tree pest that was found in Boulder, CO in September, 2013. It has not been found anywhere in Aurora at this time, but it is expected to spread. Over the next decade, EAB has the potential to destroy more of Aurora's urban forest than any other disease or pest in history.
Freeze Damage on Trees
In early November 2014, we experienced a sudden and drastic freeze. Many trees along the Front Range are showing signs of freeze damage as a result. Instead of removing damaged trees at this time, we recommend waiting until later this spring to see if any viable buds come out of dormancy. Click for more information from the Colorado State Forest Service, or watch a video from Colorado State University.
See the updated Grid Pruning Map to track the Forestry crew's progress on scheduled maintenance for all City Street Trees.
The Forestry Division employs trained, professional arborists who are able to identify and diagnose problems with trees. If you notice a problem on a City street tree, or have questions about trees in your private landscape, please call the Forestry Division at 303-739-7177. If necessary, an inspector will visit the site to assess the problem and make recommendations for correction or treatment.
