Emerald ash borer likely to kill all village ash trees within 5 years
LEMONT – The village of Lemont is in the midst of addressing an emerald ash borer infestation that likely will kill most of the village’s ash trees within five years.
Bill Peters, a crew chief with the Public Works Department, said the village removed 30 dying trees last year and estimates 50 will need to be removed this year. That number is expected to grow year over year until the vast majority of ash trees have become infected and been removed.
“It’s definitely going to escalate,” Peters said.
