Presentation summary:
Emerald ash borer has established in most of the northeastern states. An important aspect of managing the impacts is to understand how to manipulate forests and woodlots prior to and in conjunction with EAB infestations. The webinar will cover how to identify signs of emerald ash borer and potential chemical treatment options for individual trees. Further discussion will address woodlot silvicultural treatments before and after EAB infestations, including considerations for pre- and post-salvage operations in context to long-term forest management and inclusion with other silvicultural activities.
Presented By:
Dr. Kimberly Bohn, Penn State University Cooperative Extension
