WESTERN SPRINGS – Treatment to protect trees from the Emerald Ash Borer beetle began Monday on parkway trees in Western Springs. 

The village is injecting a pesticide – a product called Tree-Age – into the base of trees along parkways. 

If residents intend to treat their own parkways trees, the village asks that they notify officials so they can keep a record of treated trees. Any tree treated by the village or a resident does not guarantee the tree will not be removed by the Public Works department.

Trees deemed a public safety hazard, or an agent for further spread of the Emerald Ash Borer, could be identified for removal by the village forester.
