MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - Given their penchant for destroying trees, emerald ash borers aren’t exactly festive, but a New Hampshire baseball team is hoping to have a bit of fun while raising awareness of the invasive beetles.

The New Hampshire Division of Forests and Lands and other agencies are hosting “Emerald Ash Borer Day” at the New Hampshire Fisher Cats game on Monday.

Four counties are under quarantine for the movement of ash products.
