INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – The city has partnered with a resource group to treat and protect 200 ash trees from the Emerald Ash Borer.

Through the Legacy Tree Project, the city is preserving ash trees in some of the city’s green spaces, including Holliday Park, Broad Ripple Park, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Park.

The Department of Public Works is partnering with Nufarm Americas and Davey Resource Group this summer to treat the trees.

Emerald Ash Borer was first identified in Indianapolis in 2006 and currently is present in all of Marion County’s nine townships.

The Legacy Tree Project, has been in place since 2010.
