The Emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis or Agrilus marcopoli) is a shiny green beetle and an invasive species known for killing ash trees in the United States. Its natural range is eastern Russia, northern China, Japan, and Korea. It was accidentally imported to North America from China in the 1990s and has since destroyed more than six million ash trees in southeastern Michigan. It was discovered in June 2002 near Detroit. It has since been found in other parts of the U.S. and Canada.   Parts of Wisconsin have been infested since 2008.   Wisconsin Quarantine Map  Confirmed EAB infestations Illinois
