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. Last year it was also identified in Omaha, NE. With two adjoining states now confirming EAB populations, it is critical that we begin planning for EAB's arrival in Cheyenne. The City of Cheyenne has begun the planning process and recently held its first public meeting. An EAB stakeholder group has been formed to assist the City in developing a management plan. This plan will help the community prepare for EAB and will also include a response plan to be implemented upon EAB's arrival in Cheyenne.
