Bolingbrook to treat trees for emerald ash borer
BOLINGBROOK – Bolingbrook recently announced that it will treat several thousand trees infected by the emerald ash borer, an exotic beetle that lays eggs inside ash tree bark, eventually poisoning and killing its host.
On Thursday, the village of Bolingbrook issued a press release explaining that trees with "60 percent or more of their foliage and in otherwise healthy condition" will be injected with Tree-age, an insecticide that is contained within the tree and lethal to the emerald ash borer for up to three years.
The village plans to issue a protocol in which each ash tree population is assessed on a case-by-case basis.
