*** ANNOUNCEMENTS ***


SPOTTED LANTERNFLY UPDATE
The Spotted Lanternfly has arrived in Albany Township. The township is within the designated quarantine area. Residents are being asked to educate themselves and help to contain this damaging invasive pest. Here is a compilation of current informational flyers: Spotted Lanternfly Flyers

One of the most important things landowners can do to reduce Spotted Lanternfly infestation is to eliminate Ailanthus Trees ("Tree-Of-Heaven"). Be warned however that simply cutting down ailanthus trees is not a viable long-term approach as the trees are very vigorous stump & root sprouters. They also spread widely by seeds and grow quickly. Here is an informational flyer on how to identify and control ailanthus trees: Tree Of Heaven Flyer

More information can be found on the following websites:
