Harmful beetle continues to spread across WNC
A destructive beetle called the emerald ash borer has now spread into Haywood County.
The Forest Service says the non-native species was found 17 miles north of Waynesville.
The pest has killed millions of trees since it was first spotted in 2002.
Signs of the bug in a tree include D-shaped holes in trunks and leaves thinning in the crowns of the trees.
