Doing something about the imminent slaughter of the city's ash trees as a result of arrival of the emerald ash borer in Baltimore should be a rallying cry for citizens to get educated about trees ( "Enemy at the gates," Aug. 26). Through understanding comes action, and what this town needs is more TreeKeepers. Free city-wide TreeKeepers classes are offered this September and I urge everyone to become educated about ash trees, the insects that threaten them and how trees really do function as the lungs of our city.

Like the arrival of a Medieval plague, alien invaders are knocking on Baltimore's door. No, we are not talking about foreign armies storming the beaches or bug-eyed creatures from outer space bent on global domination. But it's almost as bad. We are referring, of course, to the recent appearance in Baltimore of the emerald ash borer, a species of voracious Asian beetle that since 2006 has killed millions of white and green ash trees in its relentless march across North America. In June, city arborists trapped a couple of the critters in Druid Hill Park, a sure sign that more are on the way. If nothing is done, some 290,000 ash trees on city owned property could be at risk of being wiped out over the next few years.

An Atlanta-based power company plans to build a recycling plant for ash produced by two of its coal-fired power plants in Southern Maryland. But spokeswoman Misty Allen denied a report that Mirant Mid-Atlantic plans to close its coal-ash landfill there, which is the focus of a state lawsuit alleging pollution of a Chesapeake Bay tributary. Allen said Mirant plans to build a processing plant in Charles County that would be able to treat all of the ash from the company's Morgantown and Chalk Point power plants.

It's cool one August morning in a forest near the marsh, quiet but for the occasional bellowing of a few green frogs, and two experts on Maryland's flora and fauna are preparing for a sticky mission. Earl "Bud" Reaves dons a wide-brimmed hat and pulls on a pair of hip waders. "A bad day in the woods is better than a good day somewhere else," says Reaves, a forester for Anne Arundel County. Chris Swarth, clad in a tie-dyed shirt, pulls a bright red flag from his jeans. "We're going to find that tree, and we're going to mark it," says Swarth, the ecologist who directs the Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary in southernmost Anne Arundel County.

Question: Can I use the ash from wood stove pellets on my plants? My friends say the glue that holds the pellets together is unnatural and unsafe to use. Answer: If the pellet particles are bound together by lignin, a natural component of wood, as is commonly done, then they should be safe to use. Check the label on the pellet bag. If the label does not answer your question about pellet composition, then contact the manufacturer to...

A voracious Asian beetle that's killed millions of ash trees across North America has finally been spotted in Baltimore, posing a costly and difficult challenge for a city that stands to lose more than 200,000 of its most common trees to the exotic pest's onslaught. It could denude blocks lined with ash and cost the city millions of dollars to remove dead or dying trees from public lands, while homeowners may be forced to pay hundreds or even thousands to treat or replace their vulnerable trees.

I found a shiny green bug in my yard, and I'm afraid it is the emerald ash borer that is killing ash trees in Maryland. What should I do about my ash tree? The emerald ash borer beetle is rarely seen. It's about 1/2-inch long with a tapering silhouette. Recently, many people are confusing them with green tiger beetles. This voracious predator of other insects is 1/2- to 3/4-inch long, with an abdomen wider than the head and thorax and six white spots on the abdomen - a good guy in your landscape, though its powerful jaws can nip. For guidance on identifying emerald ash borers and symptoms, observing the quarantine on ash wood, and deciding on treatment of a valuable ash tree, go to extension.umd.edu/hgic/invasives/emerald-ash-borer . I'd been watering my new dogwood for 45 minutes a day like I was told to do, but I forgot the hose one day and watered for 50 minutes.

When a plant is listed as invasive, how far does it spread? How far apart should I plant bamboo for a privacy screen? How far? "Invasive" doesn't mean garden-variety nuisance — it means a foreign invader spreading aggressively until it has destroyed environment, economy, even human health. Sometimes, it is unstoppable. April is Invasive Plant, Pest and Disease Awareness Month, a time to consider what we lose when invasive species get in the United States. For example, Emerald ash borer has killed tens of millions of ash trees and is now in Maryland.

With a smudge of ash on his forehead and a friendly smile lighting up his face, the Rev. Kristofer Lindh-Payne will be spending Ash Wednesday greeting morning and evening commuters at the Ridgely Road light rail station. After a hearty "Good morning," he will remind passersby that it's Ash Wednesday and offers to draw the traditional ash cross on their foreheads. An intimate ritual taking place in a public setting, it's an unusual way to start Christianity's solemn season of Lent.

In our religious relationships there are frequently rituals and symbols: the sign of the cross, prayers, special embraces, a kiss. These customs are expressions of our humility, love and heartfelt needs. Many people who seldom go to church make a concerted effort to get there on Ash Wednesday to receive ashes. It is an annual ritual. As a boy, I recall churches opening at 6 a.m., so people could get their ashes before work. It seemed a curious thing to do, accepting a cross of ash on one's forehead - a symbol of our mortality and repentance.

After opening the season with five consecutive losses, the Mount St. Mary's men's basketball team has won three of its past five games, including Saturday's 70-58 victory over Loyola. The surprising part is that the positive results have occurred without two starters. Senior center Kristijan Krajina has missed the last three games and will sit out the remainder of the season because of a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Freshman shooting guard Byron Ashe has not played in the past two games after suffering a concussion during practice.

It's the sort of project that might soften objections to suburban development: a Wegmans supermarket that peddles everything from $6 takeout meals to black truffles that can retail for $400 per pound. But the planned Wegmans in Anne Arundel County, part of a $300 million project called The Village at Waugh Chapel South, has sparked protests from some nearby residents. They fear that fly ash soil contamination at the site — a former dump — could pollute their drinking water. A flurry of legal activity questions the impact of construction on underground pollution from fly ash, a toxic byproduct of coal that has seeped into area groundwater in places.

"Ashe to Amen" is a most interesting exhibit and brings to the Reginald Lewis Museum a plethora of talent of African Artists both past and present. Would that the article by Mary Carole McCauley had proclaimed the dedication and hard work put forth by Leslie King-Hammond to curate this outstanding exhibition ("'Ashe to Amen' exhibit at Reginald Lewis museum raises questions," June 29). I met Ms. King-Hammond for the first time as she acted as docent for the exhibit and gave much additional and interesting information.
