On August 15, we are featuring an Update on the Emerald Ash Borer. Learn what to look for on your trees. As well as, what you can do to help protect your property. The confirmation of Emerald Ash Borer in Boulder County (Boulder, Lafayette, Longmont, Gunbarrell, and most recently in Superior) warns of the unavoidable introduction of a new tree pest to Greeley. This infestation could adversely affect thousands of Ash trees in our community. City of Greeley Forestry Manager, Shiloh Hatcher is the presenter for this workshop.
