Ash Tree Beetles Infect Lawrence Trees

The city of Lawrence Parks and Recreation Department is seeking over 200 thousand dollars to deal with an infestation of beetles.

The Emerald Ashe Borer Beetle was found in Lawrence trees last year and the beetles are expected to take a toll on many more.

The beetles feed on ash trees and its projected that in ten years they could destroy every ash tree in the city.

If the requested funds are approved, the money will pay for staffing and treatment.
