Asian Longhorned Beetle Presentation

Learn About Enemies of Your Favorite Trees at the Asian Longhorned Beetle Presentation

Asian Longhorned Beetle Presentation      All of the downed trees from Sunday’s wild storm remind me of how important urban trees are to our daily happiness.

It seems that the enemies of trees are growing in number – foes of longstanding like lightning and wind are joined by homeowners who don’t like to pick up branches or are afraid of the trees in their yard.  I cringe when I hear the sound of a saw in the neighborhood – fearing that another tree is about to be felled.

Add the Asian Longhorned Beetle to the list of things we tree huggers have to worry about.

On Wednesday night the Somerville Garden Club is sponsoring a presentation by horticulturist Debra Elson on the Asian Longhorned Beetle and other pests that damage or kill trees.

A video, “Lurking In the Trees”, about the devastation the beetle caused in Worcester will be shown.  Elson will also discuss the Hemlock Wooly Adelgid, Winter Moth, Eastern Tent Caterpillar, and Gypsy Moth Caterpillar.
