In a letter sent to all New Hampshire towns, state entomologist Piera Siegert described how the state of New Hampshire has changed its focus to prevent the spread of emerald ash borer from regulations to best practices. As of October 1, the in-state quarantine on the movement of ash wood products (e.g., ash logs, chips, firewood) has been eliminated. The state is now encouraging actions by homeowners and the forestry industry that can help reduce the spread of EAB.

Ruth Smith joined UNH Extension in September as the Master Gardener volunteer coordinator. In her new role, Smith will recruit, train and support New Hampshire Master Gardeners. While she’s new to Extension, she’s no stranger to educational work, gardening and volunteerism. We recently caught up with Smith to talk about her plans for supporting Master Gardeners, the power of volunteering and why it’s always good to have a change of clothes handy when you’re near a pond.
