Village residents may or may not be aware of an invasive species that attacks ash trees. The Emerald Ash Borer is an invasive insect that infects and ultimately kills ash trees. Unfortunately, we have quite a few ash trees along our village streets and in our parks. Over the next two years we will embark on a program to remove these trees. Unfortunately, this will result in a substantial loss of tree canopy along some streets and in both Community Park and Mercer Park. New trees will be planted as infected trees are removed. If you have any questions regarding dead or dying street trees at your home, please feel free to contact our Village Engineering office at 315-635-9665.
