Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) is an invasive bug that has been killing Ash trees throughout New Hampshire. EAB rapidly kills trees during their larval stage by eating their way through the phloem and cambium (live tissues) of a tree. A tree can go from seemingly healthy one week, to a week later nearly dead and peppered with multiple exit holes from when the adults emerge from the bark.
We are holding a landowner-focused workshop in collaboration with UNH Cooperative Extension, NH Division of Forests and Lands, and the Sugar Hill Conservation Commission to help people prepare for, understand, and identify EAB. Additionally an Ash tree will be girdled to stress the tree, and we will check back in the Spring during the follow-up to this workshop to see if there are any signs of EAB activity.
Forest Health Specialist Molly Heuss, and county Forester David Falkenham will be presenting at this workshop.
This workshop is free and open to everyone and we hope that you can attend!
