Video Client - Denver Botanic Gardens

OMF's Video Services Department teamed up with the Denver Botanic Gardens and Jonny 5 of the Flobots to make a music video to increase awareness about the emerald ash borer insect.

"The emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis) has been confirmed in Colorado," says the Denver Botanic Gardens. "This invasive Asian beetle has decimated ash trees in the Midwest since its discovery in 2002, costing millions of dollars to homeowners and cities. Early detection is key to controlling the emerald ash borer! Look for signs of infestation and report them to your county extension office."
