State To Cut Down White Ash Trees

Officials looking for beetle infestation.

State To Cut Down White Ash Trees

Since it was determined that the Emerald Ash Borer beetle was found in North Andover, state and local officials have begun a mitigation plan.

The board of selectmen voted last week to allow the state permission to cut down white ash trees on town property to check for the beetle infestation, according to a report in the Eagle-Tribune.

If the trees have been infested, the state could impose a quarantine which would stop any white ash trees from being moved out of Essex County, Peter Church of the Department of Conservation of Recreation told the Eagle-Tribune.
