The damage caused by Emerald Ash Borer will rival or surpass any forest pest that Iowa has seen in the past, and the costs associated with treatment and removal are high. However, with proper preparation and management practices landowners and communities can minimize the loss of resources and money caused by EAB.

Disposal costs can be reduced with advanced planning - don't wait until EAB arrives to investigate options!
