Battle of the Ash Borer

emerald-ash-borer-sizeA while back, I posted a piece on the Emerald Ash Borer, the creepy little invasive insect that’s killing ash trees around the country. The EAB has decimated ash trees here in Michigan, and it’s so depressing to drive down the road and see so many dead trees…they’re everywhere.

The Detroit Free Press has just released an excellent piece on this terrible bug, “The Battle of the ash borer,” and I wanted to share it here. It’s well worth a quick read, because the ash borer issue affects us all, whether we realize it or not. Can the ash tree survive? Does anybody care?
