The city of Dublin will continue its fight against the emerald ash borer this fall with treatment and removal of ash trees in city parks and along roadways.

The emerald ash borer was found within city limits in May and the city will continue to fight the spread of the non-native insect that has killed millions of ash trees in the Midwest.

According to a news release from the city, there are about 1,500 ash trees in parks and 3,200 along streets in Dublin.

By the end of the month the city will treat street trees along Amberleigh Way, Gillingham Avenue, Bristol Drive, Golden Place, Parker Hill Lane, Wendy Trail, Kendall Ridge Boulevard, Ballybridge Lane, Killbrittan Lane and Brand Road in front of the Wellington subdivision with a chemical injection.

Dublin will also remove and replace ash trees along Park Hill Drive, Summerhouse Lane West, Tayside Circle and the Wiltshire Drive greenspace in the Wyndham Village subdivision.

Residents will receive notice before the city begins work in their area.

The city will not remove or treat trees on private property. Residents can decide to treat, retain or remove ash trees on their property.

Information on the emerald ash borer is available on the city's Web site at Dublin.oh.us.
