Emerald Ash Borer
An insect destructive to Ash Trees, known as the Emerald Ash Tree Borer (EAB), has been spreading through upper parts of the country, it now progressing as near as Wyandotte county Kansas. The infestation is of concern to the Oak Hill community with its significant population of Ash Trees found in yards and lining many neighborhood streets. Jim will send out an email blast to make our homeowners aware of this problem. Our Homes Association is engaged in evaluating measures that could be extended to our neighbors in helping to deal with the issue. You can find more information on the EAB situation on the Lenexa City website http://www.lenexa.com/parks/trees_ashwalnut.html as well as other on-line resources.

Clare has contacted Shawnee Home Improvement to repair and paint the restrooms at the pool.
