Fear of the Beetle
New Hampshire foresters are closely watching the movements of an exotic beetle known as the Emerald Ash Borer. Just last month the U-S Forest Service announced that for the first time, the beetle has been found east of the Hudson river. That’s just ninety miles from the New Hampshire border. The Emerald Ash Borer first appeared in North America ten years ago, and has killed millions of ash trees in several mid-Atlantic and Midwestern states, as well as Canada. To find out whether or not the beetle poses a threat to the Granite State, we turn to Kyle Lombard. He’s the Forest Health Program coordinator for the state. He says any threat to the state’s ash trees is serious.
