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.
See the updated Grid Pruning Map to track the Forestry crew's progress on scheduled maintenance for all City Street Trees.
