Since September of 1996, the Asian Longhorned Beetle has become a major concern for tree admirers and property owners throughout NYC, Brooklyn, Queens, Nassau County, & Suffolk County. As a result of the major affects this invasive pest has caused, the DEC has established many rules and regulations in discovering, monitoring, and disposing of any trees, throughout New York State.
The Asian Longhorned Beetle originates from countries in Asia such as Japan, Korea, and China. It is considered to be an invasive species of pests. This tree pest directly affects the vascular system of any tree it lives in. It is greatly devastating to a tree’s health when the pest is in its larvae stages. When in the larvae stage, the beetle intervenes with the vascular paths from one area of the tree to another. Common tree hosts, where the Asian Longhorned Beetle is found within are an Elm, Willow, Poplar, Horse Chestnut, Norway Maple, Sugar Maple, Silver Maples.
