May we all pause to send our condolences to Maryland?
Maryland has fought for a dozen years to slow the spread of the emerald ash borer. State agency leaders knew they had ash resources worth protecting: more than 200,000 trees in the state’s principal city, Baltimore. Ashes are the most common tree in the city. The surrounding counties have even more- up to an estimated 6.5 million ash trees.
