Documentary Film: Lurking in the Trees: The Asian Longhorned Beetle

Thursday, June 9th at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room

This true story depicts the devastation, cooperation, and renewal experienced by a community infested with an invasive tree-killing insect.

In the last 20 years, an invasive pest called the Asian longhorned beetle (ALB) has been discovered in several US cities. Yet in the city of Worcester, MA, the ALB has apparently been spreading for at least 12 years, only to be discovered in 2008 by a vigilant citizen who called the authorities about a bug she didn’t recognize. The ALB has put Worcester’s trees at risk, but more ominous is the fact that with one camping trip, the bug could spread deep into the heart of New England’s forest canopy.

Worcester is fighting back. They’re making the ultimate sacrifice - cutting down over 25,000 trees, to protect trees throughout the Northeast.
