Syracuse & Buffalo Tree Recovery

Donate Now dollarsign


Emerald ash borer (EAB)—an invasive insect from Asia with no natural predator—has been attacking America’s native ash tree population since 2002. In 2009, the pest was discovered in New York (a state with more than 900 million ash trees), making its way to the communities of Syracuse and Buffalo. The millions of ash trees that help make up the city’s urban tree canopy have either died or are at high risk of succumbing to EAB. Unfortunately, not much success has been found to stop the devastation, and infected trees die within two to four years of infestation.

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