Emerald Ash Borer is Here - Now What?

  • Saturday, January 18, 2020, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

The Emerald Ash Borer is an invasive insect that attacks ash trees. Tree mortality occurs within 2-4 years, and is near 100%. First found in the Midwest in 2002, EAB has killed hundreds of millions of ash trees throughout North America. New York State forests contain 7-25% ash species and ash is a common landscape tree. 

Whether you have ash trees in your landscape or in a forest setting, get the latest, research-based information on how to deal with this pest. Speakers will include Michael DeMarco (Watertown City Planner and ISA Certified Arborist) and Glen Roberts (NYS DEC Forester).

The snow date for this event will be January 25th.
