More ash trees found infested with Emerald Ash Borers — Lake Zurich news, photos and events — TribLocal.com
Lake Zurich’s ash trees are being examined one at a time for Emerald Ash Borers, and arborists recently spotted more infested trees across town from where the bug was originally found.
“We were hoping it was confined,” said Village Arborist Shawn Walkington.
However, after an initial inspection found that about 30 trees infected by the bug in March at the Lake Zurich Manor subdivision, three more infected trees were found across town at Countryside East subdivision, Walkington said.
Village arborists are starting with parkway trees, and have been responding to homeowner’s requests to inspect trees that they think might have been infested by the green beetles.
