Joliet, IL to Cut Down Ash Trees

Posted by Ron Wolford -

The tree-killing emerald ash borer has been found in several locations across Joliet, the city arborist says.

The bug, which kills only ash trees, was first detected in Joliet earlier this spring.

Joliet plans to cut down about 500 of the city's ash trees starting in late fall, according to a management plan given preliminary approval by the city council's land use committee this week. More ash trees would come down in future years. The plan goes to the full city council for final approval.
