Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) confirmed in Village of Lake Forest IL 

On March 26, 2009 the Illinois Department of Agriculture field staff viewed and  confirmed Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) damage and positively identified EAB larva on June Terrace parkway trees in Lake Forest. Since that time the City’s Forestry section has confirmed that EAB is present in trees throughout the whole city, putting every ash tree within the City at risk.

EAB Management – Private Property Trees

Focusing only on the removal of public property infested ash trees will not help to prevent the further spread of EAB. The City of Lake Forest Tree Ordinance (Article IX, section 42-65 thru section 42-73) is currently being updated to reflect the need for the control of EAB on private property. The ordinance requires the removal of Public Nuisances such as dead/diseased elm trees and dead/infested with EAB ash trees on private property.
