Burr Rige, Il Continues Protecting Trees From Emerald Ash Bore
The Emerald Ash Borer is a problem in Burr Ridge.
The EAB beetle is infesting ash trees in the area, essentially starving them. When enough of these one-half-inch long insects are living within an ash tree, they destroy the system that moves nutrients throughout the tree. When enough of them are living within a tree, the bark pulls away from the wood. There may be thousands of bores in one tree.
