Town funds public tree inventory in anticipation of arrival of ash borer; Milton, ON, Canada; 2/13/09

Tree-killing beetle on way here? Milton Canadian Champion - Milton,ON,Canada
The Town is girding for the apparently inevitable spread of a shiny green, Ash tree-killing beetle native to Asia, something that could wipe out much of the community’s trees and cost the Town millions of dollars in future years.
With no apparent large-scale controls on the beetle’s devastation, the Town appears left with no option except to simply figure out how to manage the spread and estimate how much it will cost to remove and replace Ash trees killed by the invasive species.
