Emerald Ash Borer at the UU Church of Concord
(02:00 PM - 04:00 PM)

Recently, it was found that the ash trees surrounding the playground at the Concord Unitarian Universalist Church of Concord are infested with Emerald Ash Borer. These trees are quickly dying and becoming hazardous as limbs begin to fall.

 

On Saturday, April 25, specialists from UNH Cooperative Extension will host a workshop at the church where we will discuss:

      -  What EAB is, where it came from, and what it does.

      -  What to expect as trees become infested.

      -  Options for saving or removing trees.

Outdoors, we will:

      -  Learn how to indentify ash trees and mark trees for removal.

      -  Look at infested trees as we learn to recognize the signs of EAB.

      -  Discuss what to do with ash wood when infested trees are cut down.

 

Come learn how EAB will affect you and your community and learn what you can do to minimize the damage this insect will cause.


Please park next door in Concord Orthopedic's lot, NOT in the UU Church lot.

 

Important: In order to avoid disrupting another group who will be using the large meeting room, please use the sanctuary entrance when entering the building for this EAB workshop.
