The tree killing emerald ash borer has been discovered for the first time in Stoughton.

City arborist Randy Nelson found the bug on the city's northwest side, and the discovery was confirmed by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.

City street crews took down the three affected trees, and other ash trees in the surrounding area will be checked for evidence of the bug.

 
 
 
 

The emerald ash borer has now been found in a dozen Dane County communities, first in Madison in 2013.

The bug is in half of Wisconsin's 72 counties, mostly in the south.
