The Emerald Ash Borer & What it Means for You
Emerald ash borer (EAB) was first found in New Hamsphire in 2013 and has since been confirmed in more than 40 towns in 5 counties. This exotic insect is widely considered the most destructive forest pest in North American and has killed hundreds of millions of Ash trees in the eastern United States. Join experts from the NH Department of Agriculture, the Division of Forests and Lands, and UNH Cooperative Extension to learn what this means for you. Topics will include:
* How to respond to EAB's detection in Strafford County
* Identifying infested trees
* EAB best management practices (BMPs).
This is a free event open to the public and registration is not required.
