Slowing Ash Mortality (SLAM) pilot project webinar April 25

EAB University Webinar
April 25, 11 a.m. to noon, Eastern Time

Dr. Deborah McCullough, MSU forest entomologist, discusses the SLAM project in Michigan's Upper Peninsula

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.
