What Tree Is That?
This 164-page pocket field guide takes a step-by-step approach using full-color botanical illustrations to identify 250 common trees in the eastern United States.
Emerald ash borer
47 counties including Davidson are now under state/federal quarantine.
EAB cannot be contained, and all ash species are at risk of dying.
Significant trees can sometimes be saved with annual chemical treatments, if diagnosed early.
The most important way to slow the spread of EAB is to stop moving firewood.
