Emerald Ash Borer News: Sackett-Wright Park

| Notices  Park Updates  

The Bellbrook-Sugarcreek Park District has confirmed invasion and damage to the Ash trees within our district. This Asian insect lays its’ eggs under the Ash tree’s bark and upon hatching, the larvae begin feeding in the phloem and outer
sapwood, producing galleries that eventually girdle and kill branches and ultimately the entire tree. Unfortunately, the Ash trees in Sackett-Wright Park were invaded by this destructive species and our Park District employees were forced
to remove many of the trees to avoid the hazards that dead trees can pose to park patrons and staff. The Park District has begun the process of reestablishment by planting over 20 trees this past fall and plans for additional plantings in the future.
