The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB)
Tuesday, 03/01/2016 (06:00 PM - 08:00 PM)

Come learn about the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) and the effects this invasive insect will have on the forest and landscapes of Franklin and surrounding towns. The EAB is the most destructive non-native insect in North America. Over the past few years, it has been found infesting and killing ash trees in forests and landscapes throughout central and southern New Hampshire. Experiences in other states tell us we can't eradicate EAB from New Hampshire, but we can protect high-value trees and slow the spread of the ash mortality. Come learn the facts and get your questions answered. Free and open to all.

 

Presenters:

  • Tim Fleury, UNH Cooperative Extension
  • Amy Papineau, UNH Cooperative Extension
  • Scott Rolfe, NH Division of Forests and Lands
