Reminder! EAB University Municipal Series Webinar Today!

EAB Tools and Tactics for Communities

Tuesday, April 16, 2013
11am - Noon  EST
Presenter: Gary Johnson, Extension Professor of forestry at the University of Minnesota.

Dr. Johnson will present information regarding EAB tools and tactics for communities with limited resources. Small communities or those lacking in resources (fiscal, human, etc.), will learn how trained volunteers can quickly inventory and assess the common "ash dependency." Information collected by trained volunteers can help in the development of valid plans for addressing the impact EAB will have on public trees.

SL.owing A.sh M.ortality Pilot Project -- An update on the project in Michigan's Upper Peninsula 11am - Noon  EST
Presenter: Deborah McCullough, Forest Entomologist with Michigan State University

Dr. Deborah McCullough is a forest entomologist at Michigan State University, and has been the lead researcher on emerald ash borer in the state since its discovery in 2002. The goal of the SL.A.M. pilot project in Michigan's Upper Peninsula is to delay and slow the expansion of ash mortality by reducing populations of the beetle in newly-infested sites, outside of known EAB infestations. The project is a collaboration between MSU, Michigan Tech. University, the USDA Forest Service, Michigan Dept. of Agriculture & Rural Development, and the state's Conservation Districts.
