Asian Longhorned Beetle Update

July 30, 2012

The Asian Longhorned Beetle has often been the source behind many tree-related woes. During the spring of 2011, we conducted a search with the Boston University Global Day of Service FOPG team to look for the beetle throughout parts of Boston, specifically the Common and the Public Garden.

On August 7, the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation’s lead ALB Forester Julie Coop will be hosting a free workshop on the beetle at the Franklin Park Golf Course Clubhouse in Dorchester. It will run from 6:30-8:00 P.M. and will teach people how to identify the Asian Longhorned Beetle and prevent it from spreading in Boston.

The Asian Longhorned Beetle is a terribly invasive insect that destroys trees. The beetle has been found throughout Massachusetts and could threaten trees within the city if it is not identified properly and quickly. We hope you will be able to participate in this informative workshop with the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation so we can protect our trees!
