Asian Longhorned Beetle Killing New York City Trees

What a novel concept, an infographic that actually gives information that is crucial and possibly life-changing…at least to some trees. While not a true infographic in the most strict and classical sense of the word, it does graphically display the area where the Asian Longhorned Beetle is having a devastating affect on the trees in New York.

The content is interesting, especially if you areĀ  a resident of New York, and provided in an easy to read format. The problem is broken down and then a solution, also easily seen, is given. How handy.

The graphics are well done, if not spectacular, mixing photography with computer graphics. A illustration of the insect is included, but an actual photo would be nice for identification.

This is a great way to get out a public service message and the care in design is evident.
