dc.description.abstractAgrilus planipennis Fairmaire, or more commonly known as the emerald ash borer (EAB), is a Buprestid beetle native to eastern Asia and Russia. It has been introduced to North America by way of anthropogenic factors. During its time in North America, it has killed millions of ash trees (Fraxinus spp.) and it has the potential to completely eradicate ash trees from the ecosystem. This research details the options available for managing EAB in the urban forest, in addition to the discrepancies in management between small and large communities. The most effective techniques for slowing the spread of EAB varies greatly between small and large communities. Furthermore, research shows that techniques vary slightly between communities of similar sizes, signifying that there are many factors that determine which plan will benefit each individual community.en_US
