Close look at the emerald ash borer
The emerald ash borer has been working its way through the Northwest Corner’s ash trees in the past year or so, killing them from the inside.
Many of the trees that were cut down along roadsides this spring were infected ash trees.
Lou Timolat at the Falls Village Saw Mill recently received a truckload of ash trees, with their bark falling off due to the ash borers’ predations.
This photo shows their trail along the tree trunk, creating a pattern that’s similar to a computer chip.
