Beware the Emerald Ash Borer!

All citizens are alerted to look out for signs of Parks Enemy #1: The Emerald Ash Borer.

The Emerald Ash Borer, or EAB, has been extremely destructive to our trees. Over 19% of Chicago’s parkway trees are ashes, and there is concern that 90,000 ash trees on Chicago’s parkways could die in the next five years.

All citizens are asked to look for signs of infestation. The attached brochure from the Morton Arboretum explains symptoms and what to do if you suspect an infestation. There are treatments available to help the tree survive.

The Morton Arboretum has also supplied the community with some great information about Emerald Ash Borer:
