EAB insect alert

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.

Tree Inspections

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.
