SGVB discusses Ash Borer issue

By on November 9, 2012

SUGAR GROVE—Sugar Grove Village Board members on Tuesday discussed ideas on how to treat trees in the community that have been infested by the Ash Borer beetle.

Streets Supervisor Geoff Payton explained that the Ash Borer issue is becoming more and more problematic and should be taken care of soon. Payton advocated a method known as “soil drenching,” which is more cost effective and could be completed by the village’s Public Works crew.

The board also discussed the idea of removing trees that are non-salvageable. These measures are meant to slow the process of Ash Borer spreading.
