Emerald Ash Borer Management   

Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) has not been detected in Cheyenne yet, however it has been found as close as Longmont, CO and recently has also been identified in Nebraska and South Dakota. With three adjoining states now confirming EAB populations, it is critical that planning begin for EAB's arrival in Cheyenne. The Cheyenne Urban Forestry Division recently completed an EAB plan for Cheyenne and has begun implementing several of its initiatives, including removing and replacing ash in poor health and providing outreach to the public and the green industry. The plan can be found here.
