Massachusetts: Deforestation of Worcester in such haste that 250 healthy trees accidentally cut

Worcester crews admit in their haste to destroy beetle-infested trees,
they cut down hundreds of healthy ones. Crews admit they cut down at
least 250 trees that were not infested with the Asian longhorned
beetle. Twenty-one of those trees were on private property.

The government has ordered the destruction of any infested trees to
try to prevent the further spread of the destructive beetle. Some
neighborhoods were drastically altered after the trees were removed.
The Worcester Telegram & Gazette reported Saturday that the
tree-cutting project has been halted while officials check to make
sure homeowners that agreed to have their trees cut down understand
their options. Specifically the “blue-spotted” tree is at high-risk of
becoming infected, but homeowners have the option of keeping their
trees.
