9/6/2022 - Spotted Lanternfly Cont'
The Conservation Department has been in correspondence with the U.S. Forest Service, CT Agricultural Experimental Station and the Town's Tree Warden regarding the Spotted Lanternfly (SLF). An informative flyer from the CAES can be found HERE.
Currently, in an effort to curb the spread of the SLF here in Fairfield, the Department has been proactive and removing all Tree-of-Heaven (Ailanthus altissima) on Town open spaces whenever possible. A more aggressive regimen is expected to follow.
