Prepare Your Community

Invasive tree pests, such as the emerald ash borer (EAB), pose serious challenges to Vermont’s communities. By planning ahead and preparing, your community can minimize the impact of invasive tree pests and reduce the risk of spreading them. Forest pest preparedness and response is ultimately the responsibility of municipal governments, businesses, and private landowners. Federal and state staff are available for technical assistance and early detection.
