Building an Emerald City?

The Emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis), a beetle native to Asia, has been found on Ash trees in Michigan, according to a Michigan Dept. of Agriculture press release. As a result, all live ash tree and ash timber in the counties where the beetles were spotted are under quarantine. More information can be found here.
