  • Bug causing damage to Pewee Valley scenery

     

    A destructive bug is causing major damage to the towering landmarks of Pewee Valley.

    The emerald ash borer is native to Russia, northern China, Japan and Korea. It first made an appearance in the U.S. in 2002. While it is not certain how the borer came to the U.S., it is suspected the insect migrated in shipping materials, according to information from the USDA Department of Forestry website on the ash borer.

    Now, 12 years later, the ash borer is ravaging ash trees in Pewee Valley.
