My name is Steve I live in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, New York.

   We have a serious problem with this beetle.  it has infested
approximately 500
trees in my community. The U.S. Dept of Agriculture and NYC Parks Dept
tell us that the only way to get rid of the problem is to cut down all the
infested trees.

   The problem is that they do very little in the way of finding
alternative to cutting down the trees. Majority of trees are in a park. In
fact also 300 will be cut down.

    Please help is there another way.
