Management Notes for this Location:
Since 1996, APHIS; State and City cooperators in New York, Illinois, and New Jersey; and US Forest Service have undertaken eradication activities imposing regulated boundaries, conducting survey and control activities around confirmed sites, and removing infested trees. To date, over 8,000 infested trees have been removed in the program areas: over 6,000 in New York, 1,500 in Chicago, and 600 in New Jersey in addition to more than 13,000 high-risk host trees. APHIS and the Forest Service work with State and City agencies to replace trees that are removed because of the Asian longhorn beetle. With new control technologies and dedicated survey efforts, the number of Asian longhorn beetle-infested trees has begun to decrease, most notably in Chicago, Illinois, where only a small portion of the previously infested area remains regulated (USDA-APHIS 2005)
