The Friends of the Public Garden is celebrating its 40th Anniversary by looking for evidence of Asian Longhorned Beetles in the Boston Common's trees. Want to help preserve the Common's trees? Volunteers are needed on Wednesday, June 23rd at 3pm to hunt for beetles. Email email@example.com to sign up.
Asian Longhorned Beetles attack and kill many types of hardwood trees, and prevention is the best control. In 2008, they were discovered in Worcester, requiring the removal of almost 27,000 trees. To learn more, download the new Asian Longhorned Beetle pocket guide. If you spot a beetle, report it on this form.
