Loveland takes proactive approach to preventing ash borers

· Feb. 18, 2015, 4:47 pm

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.
