The emerald ash borer is coming our way and there’s nothing we can do to stop it.
While it may be metallic green and smaller than a penny, the flying beetle is a major destroyer of ash trees. “It doesn’t care if the tree is big, small, sick, dying, young—it knows what an ash tree is and will lay its eggs inside,” says Steve Nagy, a local board-certified master arborist and assistant district manager for The Care of Trees.
