The emerald ash borer (EAB) is a nonnative invasive forest pest first discovered in the United State in 2002. As of April 2018, EAB has been confirmed in four Vermont towns - Orange, Barre, Groton, and Plainfield. Join state forester Jim Esden and Windsor County forester AJ Follensbee for this 3-hour workshop to learn about the biology and identification of EAB, how to report a suspected infestation, and what EAB means for woodlot management. The workshop will begin with indoor presentations and discussion, and then head outdoors to take a look at the park’s ash trees. All ages welcome!
Please dress appropriately for outdoor activity, and bring a water bottle if possible. Event will continue rain or shine! Co-sponsored by Vermont Coverts and the Vermont Woodlands Association.
