confirmation in Cass County (Greenwood)...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
A recent survey of Wahoo's 'public' trees

indicates that ash species comprise the largest single species of trees
on public space in our community...nearly 325 trees! Also 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.
