Too late to stop ash borer spread, Sherbrooke to change rules for ash ­owners

By Gordon Lambie

The City of Sherbrooke is preparing to change the rules in the battle against the Emerald Ash Borer based on information indicating that the invasive insect has been present in the region much longer than previously thought. In light of the new information, the requirements on residents that were originally quite strict in order to control the spread of the insect have been relaxed in the name of preserving forest cover. See full story in the Wednesday, September 19 edition of The Record.
