Planning and timing are critical for saving your urban ash forest from EAB



Date: March 28, 2018
Times: 1:00 PM

Registration: http://www.forestrywebinars.net/webinars/planning-and-timing-are-critical-for-saving-your-urban-ash-forest-from-eab

Presentation summary:
The emerald ash borer (EAB, Agrilus planipennis) was first discovered in North America in 2002.  Since that time it has spread throughout much of the eastern half of the continent, killing millions of ash trees in urban and rural settings.  There is no effective silvicultural management method, biological control is still in the early stages, and chemical tree protection has proven to be the most effective.  This webinar will give an update on the status of EAB in North America, and highlight recent advances in chemical treatment technologies for saving ash trees in urban areas.

Presented by: Dr. Cliff Sadof - Department of Entomology, Purdue University

Presentation summary:
Degraded woodlots often contain small diameter, poor quality, and often unhealthy trees. This presentation will address how to identify woodlots that have been degraded in the past, and management options to salvage or restore the health, quality, and productivity of these woodlots to more functional forest ecosystems.
