Beetle Infestation To Cost City Millions

Ann Arbor, MI and neighboring cities are preparing to lose most of their ash trees to the Emerald Ash Borer beetle.

"In a city that prides itself on trees and lots of them, the news could hardly be worse: Ann Arbor and its residents are going to lose most, if not all, of its ash trees, which make up about 20 percent of Tree Town's canopy."
