Selectmen have approved the removal of thousands of trees in town that have been infested with the destructive Asian longhorned beetle. The Board of Selectmen approved the removal of hardwood trees on 92 acres on Tuesday.

Some of the property belongs to St. John’s, some to the town, and some is in a Worcester-owned gun range.
