European Oak Borer - Agrilus sulcicollis

The European oak borer - Agrilus sulcicollis (Lacordaire) is a potential threat to the oak forest in North America. Native to Europe the European Oak Borer was introduced to North America in Michingan and Ontario.

Sample Areas were developed using the Susceptibility Surface. A total of 1,000 sample areas were assigned to one of four risk categories. Relative certainties were assigned to each category in order to create increasing plot intensifications for increasing risk stratums.
