The Emerald Ash Borer and What it Means for You
Friday, 08/18/2017 (07:00 PM - 08:30 PM)

Emerald ash borer (EAB) was first found in New Hampshire in 2013 and has since been confirmed in more than 20 towns in four counties. This exotic insect is widely considered the most destructive forest pest in North America and has killed hundreds of millions of ash trees in the eastern United States. Join Dode Gladders, UNH Cooperative Extension Forester in Sullivan County, and Morgan Dube, Entomologist with the NH Department of Agriculture, to learn what this means for you. Topics will include preparing for EAB's arrival in your town, how to identify infested trees, management options, and the ash quarantine.
