Economic Impacts of
Non-Native Forest Insects in the Continental
Northern Research Station.
Non-native, wood-boring insects such as the emerald
ash borer and the Asian
longhorned beetle are costing an estimated
$1.7 billion in local government expenditures
and approximately $830 million in lost residential
property values every year, according to study
by a research team that included scientists with
the U.S. Forest Service, Northern
Research Station. This study provides the
most comprehensive estimates of the costs of non-native
forest insects that are currently available for
the U.S. See also: News Release - Study
