Abstract: Established populations of the Asian longhorned beetle, Anoplophora glabeipennis, were first discovered in New York City in 1996 and then in Chicago in 1998. Because of the limited number and size
of infestations discovered in 1996, the US Department of Agriculmre (USDA) initiated an eradication program that requires cutting and chipping of all infested trees. As of September 2000, more than 4800
infested trees have been cut in New York and more than 1400 in Chicago.
