National Tree Check Month

The Asian longhorned beetle has the potential to destroy millions of acres of America's hardwoods, including maple, birch, elm, willow, ash, and poplar trees. Unfortunately, there is currently no cure to save infested trees. Infested trees need to be removed to keep the beetle from spreading to nearby trees, as well as to protect homes and other personal property since infested trees will eventually die.

For more information on this holiday please visit the National Tree Check Month website.
