The Emerald Ash Borer is an invasive species of exotic beetle that was first discovered in this area in 2002. Specifically, it was found in southeastern Michigan first. It didn’t take too long to spread and take out ash trees all over. The larvae of the Emerald Ash Borer feed on the inner bark of ass trees. This makes it so that they can’t transport nutrients or water to its limbs. They can easily kill an ash tree.
The Town of Newburgh has five ash trees that are very important to residents. Three ash trees provide shade at the Fortress of Fun. This shade is imperative for enjoyment during the warm seasons. In order to ensure that ash trees can survive while the emerald ash borer comes through, the trees needed treatment.
Donations to the Town of Newburgh allowed those treatments to take place for the first time in 2016. These treatments only last two years. Treatments need to take place every two years for the next decade (depending on the invasion from this beetle, these every other year treatments may be required into perpetuity) to make sure they survive the invasive species.
