Forest Foe: How You Can Help Slow the Emerald Ash Borer Invasion
From null Zoom Webinar
The establishment of emerald ash borer (EAB) could devastate whole habitat types that are dominated by Oregon ash and reduce urban forest cover. Now that EAB has been found in Oregon, it is essential to learn how to recognize it and report its presence. This webinar will teach you how to correctly identify EAB, Oregon ash, and other common ash species, as well as share current best management practices and integrated pest management solutions for combatting EAB and slowing ash mortality.
