Abstract

We had a unique opportunity to assess the dispersal of one generation of emerald ash borer adults for spread pattern in a rural area near Tipton, Lenawee County, Michigan. A Michigan Department of Agriculture inspector discovered adult beetles ovipositing on small ash trees in 2002 in this area, well beyond the core infestation area. Discussions with the property owner revealed that the infestation originated from a load of infested ash firewood brought in from southeastern Michigan in the spring of 2002.
