Experimental treatment fails to save some village trees
RIVERSIDE -- Scientists at the Morton Arboretum were unable to save some village trees afflicted with the Emerald Ash Borer beatle, Village Manager Peter Scalera told the Board of Trustees at their public meeting Thursday night.
Scalera said the village has been working with Arboretum staff since 2011 to identify and treat trees in Indian Gardens. He said some trees took to the experimental treatments, but others eventually succumbed to the deadly pest.
“I am sad to report that we have approximately 30 ash trees in the Indian Gardens area that have not reacted positively to the chemical trial,” Scalera said.
