Emerald ash borer (EAB) was discovered in Lombard in 2008. The adult beetles nibble on ash foliage but cause little damage. The larvae, however, feed on the inner bark of ash trees, disrupting the tree's ability to transport water and nutrients. Emerald ash borer probably arrived in the United States on solid wood packing material carried in cargo ships or airplanes originating in its native Asia. Since its discovery, EAB has killed almost 400 trees in the Village since 2009.
Trees on private property infested with the Emerald Ash Borer are considered nuisance trees and must be removed (Village Code 99.02), however, only those contractors that are compliant with the Illinois Department of Agriculture can remove ash trees in Lombard.
