Michigan Tree Recovery

Donate Now dollarsign


In the summer of 2002, Emerald Ash Borer was discovered in southeastern Michigan, near Detroit. The full impact of the beetle’s presence in the city's ash trees hit between 2004-2007, with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources estimating that millions of ash trees have been wiped out since EAB was introduced to the local ecosystem. The economic repercussions in Michigan are a factor as well, with estimates of projected losses in the billions of dollars, as EAB continues its slow march through the state.

Community Tree Recovery is an initiative of the Arbor Day Foundation nationally sponsored by FedEx.
