With confirmation of the presence of the Emerald Ash Borer in Nebraska (Omaha, Greenwood, and Lincoln)...Wahoo property owners are strongly encouraged to become well-informed about this invasive pest and the tremendous impact it is expected to have on the City of Wahoo's community forestry.  A survey of Wahoo's public trees which includes trees on public property and in the street right-of-way, indicates that ash species comprise the largest single species of trees on public space in our community...nearly 325 trees!  Keep in mind, this does not include the dozens of ash trees on private property.  Clearly, EAB will have a tremendous impact on Wahoo and our tree canopy.  Now is the time to learn as much as possible about EAB and it's impact so that you can make appropriate decisions regarding your ash trees.
