WNLA Working Hard to Fighting Against Emerald Ash Borer

Members of the Wisconsin Nursery and Landscape Association (WNLA) are working hard to improve plants and to produce plants that can take the place of the ash trees being overtaken by the Emerald Ash Borer. Ash trees comprise 30% of all the trees in Wisconsin and WNLA executive director Brian Swingle says diversity is the key to helping curb the issue.

While some municipalities and home owners have tried to treat their issues with pest control, Swingle says smaller and diseased ash trees should be taken out.

Swingle hopes the industry and the general public can learn from tree issues such as the Emerald Ash Borer and the Dutch Elm disease that hit the state years ago.

Last week, the Door County Airport and Parks Committee approved a three-stage plan that will eventually remove all of the Ash trees from Door Bluff Headlands County Park in the town of Liberty Grove.
