In New York City and Chicago, ALB is most often found in maples (Acer spp.), reflecting both a preferences for maples as well as the fact that maples are the most common urban trees in both cities. In the United States and China, the ALB also attacks a wide range of other deciduous trees including birches (Betula spp.), elms (Ulmus spp.), poplars (Populus spp.), and willows (Salix spp.). Recent observations show that several other trees in the United States also serve as hosts to the ALB, including species of Aesculus, Fraxinus, Hibiscus, Prunus, and Sorbus. Laboratory rearing studies by U.S. researchers suggest that the host range may be even broader.
