BUFFALO (WBFO) - The emerald ash borer is becoming an issue for Cattaraugus County. The invasive species is a major problem for a portion of the 2,000 acres of county forest."
The ash trees are going to disappear," said County Legislator Joe Snyder, who also works as a lumber buyer in the Southern Tier timber industry.
"So far, this borer has not changed species. It's specific to ash trees. It hasn't jumped to to the maples or the oaks or anything like that."
