Ash trees in Webster are currently experiencing infestations by the Emerald Ash Borer, an invasive beetle.
When the tree becomes infested, the tree canopy will show signs of die-back, yellowing, and browning of leaves. According to the NYS DEC, the trunk of the tree will have large strips of bark falling off, revealing S-shaped larval galleries.
Most trees will die within 2 - 4 years of an infestation.
