Loveland takes proactive approach to preventing ash borers

February 18, 2015

The city of Loveland is planning to remove dozens of trees this year in an attempt to reduce the potential spread of a destructive beetle called the emerald ash borer.

According to the Reporter-Herald, the city will cut down 50 to 100 of its 800 ash trees and replace them with a variety of other species. City leaders hope to avoid huge stands of dead trees on public land by slowly phasing out ash trees.
