The Council is a collaborative effort of several state and federal agencies to keep citizens informed of the latest invasive insect and disease threats to Missouri’s trees. Whether you have a single tree in your yard or acres of woodlands on your property, this site is for you.

The invasive species to be on the lookout for in Missouri are emerald ash borer, thousand cankers disease, Asian longhorned beetle, pine shoot beetle and gypsy moth. To learn more about these invasive species and some troublesome native species, see the Tree Pests publications listed below.
