Asian longhorned beetles and their effects on Worcester brains
A few days ago I linked to a Boston Globe story suggesting that trees help relieve the mental stress of living in large cities. Unfortunately, the Daily Worcesteria reminds us that the Bay State's second largest city is losing a lot of its trees due to the infestation by Asian longhorned beetles. (Additional wood chipper video here.)
Hang in there, Worcester residents! Maybe Boston can send over some cherry trees.
