GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) Starting today, thirty-six Ash trees will be removed from the WPS property in downtown Green Bay. It's all because the Emerald Ash Borer was found devastating the area.
A total of nine trees are infested so far. But according to WPS, there is a high probability the rest of the trees have EAB eggs in them also.
Officials are concerned about Ash trees within 10-15 miles of the WPS property. Local Five's Wendy Fleury tells you what action you should take if you live close by.
