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. Clint McFarland and Julie Coop of the US Department of Agriculture said the infested trees, mostly red maple, are north of St. John’s High School athletic fields on Main Street and south of Interstate 290. Some of the property belongs to St. John’s, some to the town, and some is in a Worcester-owned gun range.
