City residents should be aware that the ash borer not only has been discovered within Shiawassee County, but within the Corunna City limits. For those of you who are not familiar with this borer, it originated from Asia. This borer attacks ash trees and to date totally kills them. Our local contact person (Dick Lischefski) from the Michigan State University extension office has been working closely with the professors at Michigan State University who have been aggressively working on possible treatments and preventions against the ash borer. He not only has a wealth of information regarding the ash borer but has information regarding a treatment that can be purchased locally that may be successful in treating the ash borer. The City Forestry Commission is asking your help in identifying any ash trees you may have on your property in order to determine just how big the problem will be for the city as well as keeping those people affected updated with the latest information available.  Please call city hall and give us your name and address along with how many ash trees you may have on your property. If you are not sure how to identify ash trees, have further questions regarding the ash borer, information is available in the City lobby. You may also call our contact person (Dick Lischefski) who will help you identify any ash tress in your yard, give up-to-date information regarding home treatments, or answer any other questions you may have on the subject. To contact Dick, call 743-2251 and leave a message and he will call you back in a very short time frame.
