A new web site containing forest health maps has been developed by the N.C. Forest Service. These maps show the most up-to-date locations of invasive tree killing pests in our state. The maps are georeferenced so they can be brought into GIS programs on desktop and mobile apps.

For those in the field, these tools are vital to help track the movement of these pests. For those in or near counties with emerald ash borer, laurel wilt or thousand cankers disease, you can keep the appropriate map file on your smartphone and if you suspect that you have found one of these pests, you can check to see if you are in a new location, and if so, report potential new infestations. New infestations can be reported to forest health personnel by phone, or by email directly from the app.

Please note that the emerald ash borer (EAB) and thousand canker disease (TCD), these are not quarantine maps. Rather, they are finer detail maps showing general areas where these pests have been detected in positive counties to date. If EAB and TCD are anywhere in a county, the whole positive county is quarantined. All maps on this page will be updated as pest activity is confirmed in new areas.

Check it out and help the Forest Service track these pests across the state. For more information, visit the N.C. Forest Service Forest Health Invasive Pest Maps web site.
