Invasive Insects Affecting our Trees
The Spotted Lanternfly is a potential threat to several important crops including grapes, peaches and timber trees. Many sites within the infested area have high populations of spotted lanternflies. Every landowner who effectively uses control measures will help to reduce the potential for this insect to spread to new territory. As of August 22, 2016 confirmed populations of the spotted lanternfly are known to exist in numerous locations in PA, including Milford Township and Trumbauersville Borough in Bucks County.
The Emerald Ash Borer has killed more than 40 million ash trees in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Missouri, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Kentucky, New York, Tennessee, Iowa, Kansas, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Georgia, Colorado, New Jersey, Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas, Nebraska, and Delaware. In June 2007 the first confirmed detection in PA was in Cranberry Township in Butler County and Marshall Township in Allegheny County. It has now been detected in 62 counties in PA.
