Use this form to report a possible emerald ash borer sighting in New Hampshire. Capture and preserve the insect if possible (place in freezer or in a jar with rubbing alcohol), or provide a photo of the tree damage, insect or damaged wood. Before submitting a report, please look at signs and symptoms or these pictures of emerald ash borer insects, damage and look-alikes. Emerald ash borer infests ashes (Fraxinus species and not mountain ash). If you can, use this ash tree identification guide to verify the tree is an ash.

All reports will be reviewed by our entomologists, and you may be contacted for a site visit if a follow-up is necessary.
