In an attempt to be pro-active against the tree-killing Emerald Ash Borer, the Door County Airport and Parks Committee has approved a three-stage plan that will eventually remove all of the Ash trees from Door Bluff Headlands County Park in the town of Liberty Grove.
Parks Director Erik Aleson explains…
Aleson says they will be using the proceeds from the timber sale at the park.
The first trees will likely be taken this winter.
The Emerald Ash Borer was detected in Door County this spring. Foresters say it will eventually destroy all of the Ash trees in the county that are not individually protected.
