​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) is an invasive species of beetle which feeds exclusively on ash trees. The larvae burrow under the bark of ash trees and feed there, causing extensive damage which leads to the death of the tree within a few years.

Native to eastern Asia, EAB was first discovered in North America in 2002. In 2008, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) confirmed the presence of EAB in Brampton and neighbouring municipalities.​
