The confirmation of Emerald Ash Borer  in Boulder County (Boulder, Lafayette, Longmont, Gunbarrel, and most recently in Superior) warns of the impending introduction of a new tree pest to Greeley. This infestation could adversely affect thousands of Ash trees in our community. According to a tree survey by the city’s Forestry Division, about 30 percent of Greeley’s street tree mix are Ash trees.
