Vago Park Landscape Changing Due to Invasive Pest

Ash tree removal began at Vago Park Wednesday, February 9 due to an infestation by the invasive north eastern Asian beetle, the Emerald Ash Borer.

These beetles are extremely destructive to native ash trees, as the trees have no natural defense to the larva that tunnel and bore through their bark. Once infected, the host tree will die within 2-4 years from the damage.
