Invasion of the Longhorns
Peter Alsop, Phillips Academy ‘95, will speak about this invasive species that is decimating hardwood forests. An outbreak in Worcester, MA has resulted in the removal of 6,000 trees, and the USDA indicates that up to another 6,000 trees may need to be removed. Earlier outbreaks have been quarantined in Illinois, New Jersey and New York, as well as in isolated warehouses in several additional states. Photo credit: US Forest Service.
