The Missouri Department of Agriculture will survey the state for emerald ash borer. "Right now our staff is working hard to educate the nursery industry, tree care specialists, arborists and professional foresters about what to be on the lookout for," said Mike Brown, MDA state entomologist. The state's ash trees are vulnerable to the pest, and state officials want to be prepared should it enter the state. Brown said Missouri nursery growers must know where their trees are coming from.
