Ash borer found in Schaumburg; Schaumburg, IL

Daily Herald | Ash borer found in Schaumburg
The tree-killing emerald ash borer has been discovered in the southwestern corner of Schaumburg.

Village officials said the Illinois Department of Agriculture confirmed the infestation earlier this month. The village didn't give a specific location or say how many trees were found to be infested with the metallic green pests, but did indicate that a third of the village's publicly owned 36,000 trees are ash trees.
