Emerald Ash Borer tree removals

Discover the ways in which the Town controls the spread of the invasive Emerald Ash Borer beetle; a bug species that can devastate the local Ash tree population. Our Ash Borer Program works to survey and remove standing dead and dangerous trees from the community and replant a variety of trees that are not susceptible to the same infestation.
