Trees typically are killed in two to four years. When trees are first attacked by EABs, the symptoms are inconspicuous and hard to notice. By the end of the second year, thinning foliage and dieback in the crown begins to be apparent. By the third year, there is severe dieback and little foliage. Epicormic sprouts may form on the lower trunk and major branches as the tree responds to emerald ash borer activity.
The Minnesota Department of Agriculture has strict guidelines for the detection of the pest and destruction of affected trees.
