Holland moves to remove infected ash trees

Lead in text: 
Ash trees make up 6% to 8% of trees in city of Holland

The removal of an estimated 2,000 ash trees within the city of Holland, including 86 in the downtown corridor in the past few months, has been stepped up because of decay caused by an infestation of the emerald ash borer, an insect first found in Michigan more than a decade ago.
