PORT ORANGE, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) - Spruce Creek Park is dealing with some unwelcome visitors. Volusia County officials say bugs are infesting pine trees on the Port Orange property and killing them.
They say to take care of the problem, the park will need to be shut down for a week starting Friday.
Officials say the Ips Bark Beetles are doing the damage. Crews will cut down the affected pine trees so the insects don’t spread to other trees. Signs will be posted in the park to let visitors know it’s closed.
