A video called “The City Saves Trees from Emerald Ash Borer” made its way to the Internet recently by way of YouTube. The video, which demonstrates the successful control and treatment of emerald ash borers in Gross Pointe Farms, Mich., tells how the city identified and treated about 560 trees along boulevards and in parks and municipal areas. The pest was originally treated in 2002, and, five years later, the results showed that more than 95 percent of the trees survived. The 24-minute video was created by www.treeresearch.org.
