MIDDLETOWN, OH (FOX19) - A local community is hoping to replace some trees destroyed by the emerald ash borer beetle and they're hoping you'll help.
The city of Middletown launched a crowd-funding program Tuesday through a website designed specifically for governments to raise money from their own citizens.
Middletown's goal of $5,400 is to purchase about 12 trees for city parks.
According to the crowd funding site, in recent months, Middletown's parks have lost over 200 ash trees to the beetle.
No money has been donated for the project as of Tuesday evening.
