Emerald Ash Borer for Birders Workshop
(07:00 PM - 08:30 PM)

Emerald Ash Borer for Birders Workshop

Help track the emerald ash borer. Forest Health officials need the help of outdoor enthusiasts, especially birders, in detecting emerald ash borer (EAB), the most destructive forest pest in North America. Its larvae tunnel just under the bark of ash trees, killing them quickly. You can help us locate this pest by spotting the characteristic bark damage caused by woodpeckers feeding on EAB larvae.

 

In this workshop, Molly Heuss, NH Division of Forest & Lands and Amy Papineau, UNH Cooperative Extension, will teach you what to look for and how to report potentially infested trees. They will also discuss the history and biology of emerald ash borer, the status of infestations in NH, the impacts this insect is expected to have on NH’s forests and landscapes, and the steps NH Forest Health officials are taking to manage this insect. Phil Brown, NH Audubon, will discuss the birds that feed on the emerald ash borer, how to identify them, and why their feeding behavior leaves the characteristic “blonding” on the ash trees.
