There is one ash tree in the Canton Village Park. It is being inoculated to protect it while other ash trees in the village are being culled. Ash trees across the county, the state and the country are falling to the chain saw before they fall to the emerald ash borer beetle.

The ash borer beetle is tiny but it doesn’t take long for the nonnative insect to destroy a tree that has a long history in our country.
