County Treats Trees For Emerald Ash Borer

An emerald ash borer.

The Emerald Ash Borer is a killing Ash Trees throughout the Midwest.

The Vigo County Parks Department is spending over $5,000 to treat as many of the trees as possible in Fowler Park and save them.

Other parks will be treated next year.

It takes a lot of work but you can prevent damage in some cases.

Ryan Cummins from the Apple House has been our guest on the Morning News Watch with Frank Rush.

Cummins has talked about soaking the ground around Ash trees with a special chemical that is absorbed by the tree and kills the bugs as they try to eat the tree.

Contract a gardening professional like those at the Apple House for details on the chemicals to use and how to use them.
