Galesburg develops plan for emerald ash borer
GALESBURG (AP) — The city of Galesburg has developed a nearly $1 million plan for dealing with the emerald ash borer.
Dozens of Illinois counties are under quarantine because of the invasive species, which is native to Asia. The larvae of the small, metallic-green beetle burrow into the bark of ash trees, causing the trees to starve and eventually die.
Galesburg's plan includes an effort to treat or remove up to 600 trees lining streets and parks in the western Illinois community.
