CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Release) - The Cheyenne Urban Forestry Division along with the Laramie County Conservation District will again be offering ash tree evaluations to gauge tree health and offer advice for care, replacement, and/or protection against Emerald ash borer (EAB).

EAB was recently identified in Fort Collins, Colorado and continues to expand across the country, killing an unprecedented number of ash trees. Please call the Cheyenne Urban Forestry Division at 637-6428 if you live within the City of Cheyenne or call the Laramie County Conservation District at 772-2600 if you live outside the city limits. The University of Wyoming Cooperative Extension and Wyoming State Forestry Division will be assisting with evaluations as well. For more information on EAB, go to www.cheyennetrees.com or www.emeraldashborer.info.
