Emerald Ash Borer Reminders
The City of Prairie Village and the Johnson County Extension Office have been receiving some calls concerning Emerald Ash Borer in recent weeks. The Johnson County Extension Office has re-published their article on Emerald Ash Borers from last year to help homeowners feel better informed about their options. The Johnson County Extension Office information can be found at http://www.johnson.k-state.edu/lawn-garden/emerald-ash-borer.html
The City of Prairie Village has had an Emerald Ash Borer program in place for the last 3 years for City trees on City property and right-of-way areas. This program includes a five year plan on removals as well as treating to minimize the visual impacts on streets that have been identified to have a significant number of Ash trees. Information on the City's program can be found on our website at https://www.pvkansas.com/resident-resources/emerald-ash-borer.
Property owners are responsible for removal or treatment of their Ash trees on their private property. If you are unsure if you have an Ash tree on your property check out the Ash tree information or contact the Johnson County Extension Office at firstname.lastname@example.org for identification assistance, either by e-mailing photos of the tree or by bringing a sample to the office.
