  • Scientist finds new ash borer host

    Wright State University Biology Professor Dr. Don Cipollini pointed out his groundbreaking discovery that the white fringe tree can be a host for the emerald ash borer.

Trees planted along the bike path and elsewhere in the village were instrumental to his discovery. (Photo by Megan Bachman)
