Managing the Emerald Ash Borer Epidemic in Nashville

It is estimated that Nashville has 1.6 million beautiful native ash trees in parks, on school grounds, along city streets and in private yards. Sadly, the Emerald Ash Borer, an invasive pest, will kill all of them by 2026, unless they are treated.

No ash tree is immune to the devastating effects of this insect which is now throughout Davidson County. The progress of the infestation and resulting tree death is now being seen throughout the city.
