Save the Trees – Spot their Enemies

by Mary Greendale
July 20, 2013

August is Tree Check Month, so be on the lookout for invasive forest pests in your parks, schools, urban forests, and where you live.

 August 1, 2013 marks the fifth anniversary of the discovery of Asian Longhorned Beetle in Massachusetts. Since that fateful day in 2008, more than 30,000 hardwood trees have been removed because of this invasive pest. Recently, another wood-boring beetle, the Emerald Ash Borer, was found in Berkshire County, and now threatens millions of Ash trees in our state. Join your fellow citizens during the month of August and check your trees for signs of damage caused by Asian Longhorned Beetle and Emerald Ash Borer, and learn to recognize the beetles themselves.  For more detailed information, visit http://massnrc.org/pests/blog/ or contact Stacy Kilb, ALB Outreach Coordinator at Stacy.Kilb@state.ma.us or 617-780-1371.

The Holliston Conservation Associates recently hosted a talk on this subject by Jennifer Forman Orth of the Mass. Dept. of Agricultural Resources. She showed slides of the Asian Longhorned Beetle and Emerald Ash Borer and the damage they can cause as well as how to identify them. Don Cronin of Holliston Cable filmed the talk and it can be seen on Cable 8 or on the web.
