Emerald Ash Borer Beetle Threatens New York's North American Ash trees
Oswego, NY – An invasive beetle that has killed tens of millions of ash trees in the Midwest and Canada has been found for the first time in New York. The state DEC says emerald ash borers were discovered this week in Cattaraugus County, in the southwestern corner of the state. About 30 trees appear to be infested. WRVO's Chris Ulanowski spoke to Dr. Melissa Fierke, Assistant Professor of Forest Entomology at the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry.
