Ribbons to identify Phillips ash trees

The Phillips Forestry Department, with help from Mr. Olson’s High School Class, will be placing green ribbons to identify ash trees in Phillips this spring. The purpose is to make citizens aware of the location of ash trees on city property.

The invasive insect, emerald ash borer, is only one county away. Emerald ash borer has killed tens of millions of ash trees in the U.S. and Canada since its discovery in Michigan in 2002. When the insect arrives in Phillips, the ash trees will be dead within a few years without treatment.
